Crazy Chemicals

Bring out your student’s inner scientist. Discover, learn and be engaged!

RECOMMENDED FOR KINDER  - YEAR 6

Students will be divided into groups and sent on a rotation of exciting hands-on science activities. We encourage the students to make their own predictions and observations using their newly acquired science vocabulary.

The science behind the messy fun will be discussed when students think critically about chemical reactions and explore a museum of science. Our innovative stations allow students to investigate solids, liquids and gases and discover how these substances can react and change. Slime, rockets, magnetism and more- what else do you need to inspire your students love of science? 

Our qualified teachers are fantastic at tailoring this session to suit your focus so please provide as much detail as possible and we can make it happen. We will also adapt terminology, key words and some equipment to differentiate and challenge older students.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

All students were highly engaged and really enjoyed it. Your instructor you provided was sensational and knew how to control the students.

Burwood PS

I just wanted to give a huge shout out to Brent, your enthusiasm was infectious and the students absolutely loved the four experiences you set out. The feedback from all of the teachers involved was positive and they noted how well you explained the ins and outs of a billy cart to the students. Thanks so much, we will definitely look to use you again in the future and will spread the word where possible.
