Home education science sessions in SomersetWe’re back for more wacky, scientific fun at 1st Ashton Scout Hut, Woodedge, Ashton-in-Makerfield WN4 9LH in the Summer holidays. Each day is run by highly trained Fun Scientists with enhanced DBS checks and first aid training and is jam-packed with experiments, games, crafts and explosions. The club will run on from 10am – 3pm on the 31st July and 3rd, 7th and 10th August. The days are perfect for children aged 5-11.

31st July – Sweet Science – Today we will be learning about acids and alkalis as we experiment to discover the perfect sherbet formula, learn about states of matter and pressure with candy floss and popcorn. We’ll also look at what happens to all that sugar with the digestion game and making edible poo!

3rd August – Brilliant Bubbleology – Bouncing bubbles! Giant bubbles. Even fire and smoke bubbles! Can you discover the perfect bubble mix formula? Make your own square bubble and bubble snake makers.

7th August – Baffling Bodies – Come and meet the Fun Science mascot! He’s our model skeleton and he (or is it a she?) will be helping you learn all about the human body, including the more disgusting bits. You’ll get a chance to make bogies and even an edible model of blood – ewwwwh!

10th August – Crazy CO2 Old favourites like volcanoes combine with exploding sandwich bags, popping film canisters, spurting lemonade geysers and fizzy drinks making for a fizzing, popping, explodingly fun day!
