British Science Week
Our favourite time of year at Fun Science is British Science Week! We love making science fun for primary school children across the country. This year the official British Science Week topic is ‘Our Diverse Planet’ and we have come up with four BRAND NEW workshops for primary school pupils to fit this theme. Each workshop is suitable for 10-40 children and can be adapted to suit children from EYFS to year 6.
Diverse reactions – The periodic table is filled with so many different chemicals and they can make a range of different types of chemical reactions. This workshop lets children work through colour changing, fizzing, exothermic and endothermic reactions so see how diverse science can be!
Eco – warriors – Learn about this risks our planet faces from global warming and increased emissions and ways to reduce these risks. Pupils will be investigating wind and solar power, seeing what will happen if the ice caps melt and making an air powered mini hovercraft! Children will also be making wildflower seed bombs to take home.
Evolution and adaptation – Pupils will learn about how animals have evolved into a variety of species’ with plenty of hands on activities that will see children becoming birds, experimenting with (pretend!) moths and much more.
Diverse materials – Our world is full of so many weird and wonderful materials and scientists are always inventing more! Children will experiment to find the best material to build a house, explore how polymers work and even make their own polymer. They will also experiment with hand mouldable plastic to make a plastic shape for the class to keep.
Alternatively, we are able to create workshops on most topics so if you have a different in mind then please do get in touch. Some of our most popular workshops are outlined below.
