Friday 27th July – Electrics and Robots – St Nick’s – Did you know, magnets and electricity are very closely related?

Monday 30th July – Volcanoes, Fire and Slime – Huntington Memorial Hall – This day is jam packed with fizzes, bubbles and even fire! Come and join in as we make slime, mix chemicals, design and create bath bombs and then use chemical reactions to help us solve a crime.

Tuesday 31st July – Bubbles, Explosions and more – Huntington Memorial Hall – Learn about physical reactions as we make it rain lemonade, test out a non-newtonian fluid, become bubble-ologists and make burning bubbles. Children will get to take part in a range of scientific experiments and will even make some reacting lava lamps to take home. 

Wednesday 1st August – Boats, Balloons and Rockets – Huntington Memorial Hall –  Fun Science is getting explosive with this session! Children will get to make mini rockets, watch our giant rocket launch and get to grips with Newton’s 3rd law.

Friday 3rd August – Senses, Colours and Rainbows – St Nick’s – Come along to our senses and colours day and learn a little more about your senses. We will be investigating rainbows, tricking our eyes and making some special scientific socks to take home.
