Information about School Workshops and Science Days



Our in-school Whizz Bang Shows, Hands-on Workshops and Science Days are ideal for children from Reception through to Year 6.

Here are just a few of our fun and interactive Mad Science Workshop topics:

Fundamental Forces

Teaches: Force, Motion, Energy
Gravity... Inertia... Centripetal force... who could ever imagine that an introduction to physics could be so much fun? We’ll experience these awesome forces for ourselves and build some cool devices to watch them at work!

Light and Sound

Teaches: Rainbow Colours, Refraction of Light, Laser Light, Sound as Vibrations, Sound Waves
Discover the science of sound, the wonderful world of sound waves and the way household items can be used to create amazing movie effects. Have fun with our Mad Science Hanger Bangers and witness how sound travels better through a solid – quite surprising, huh!

Uncover the hidden components in ordinary light and see all the colours of the rainbow using diffraction glasses. Use chemistry to create our very own chemical light bulb and all the children will get to ‘catch their shadows’ using some fascinating physics… Finish off by attending a spectacular chemical energy display!

Watts Up

Teaches: Static Electricity, Current Electricity, Conductors and Insulators
Learn about electricity, its properties and its role in natural phenomena. Make indoor lightning while conducting hair-raising experiments with our electro-static generator...

Roaring Rockets & Fabulous Flight

Teaches: Forces, Phases of Rocket Flight
Discover the dynamics of rocket flight – “5, 4, 3, 2, 1 – take off”! Discuss and explore our Mad Science rockets while learning how and why they fly – in groups, design and launch your very own balloon rocket race! And finally take part in a NASA-style launching of model rockets.

Slippery Slime

Teaches: States of Matter, Polymers, Cross Linkers
Explore the exciting world of polymers, the chemical reactions we use to create them and the inner workings of silly putty. Transform two regular liquids into an oozing batch of your very own slime... Take part in our very own Mad Science Slime Olympics and find out the science behind magic mud…. It’s a slimy world out there!

Dry Ice Capades

Teaches: States of Matter, Effects of Heat, Sublimation
Explore the 3 states of matter. Turn water to ice in 30 seconds, build a giant bubbling potion, carbonate plain drinking water and create the same awesome smoke illusions used in the movies….! All is not what it seems…..!
