Slime making Workshop: Children make and take home slimey slime ! They learn about long-chain polymerisation and Non-Newtonian fluids. They get to punch slime.
Forensic Crime scene Workshop : ( not too scary for younger groups!) We set up a crime scene and children play deceive to find our who the culprit is. Fingerprinting, black lights, moulding and shoe rubbings are great fun in this very hands on session.
Electricity workshop : We bring our amazing Van Der Graaf generators and give a Barbie doll a ‘hair -raising ‘ experience. Can you touch 250,000 volts? We explain the difference between voltage and current. Our plasma ball lights up with a light sabre and children learn about static electricity.
