These interactive shows can be adapted for Foundation Stage (30 mins) or KS 1 groups (40 mins). They are presented in a gentle and playful manner in order to engage these age groups.
Playing with science
This interactive show involves pupils in investigating how a wide variety of popular toys work and encourages them to think about science as a way of asking questions.
The exact concepts covered in the show will depend on the age of the audience, but will include topics such as: science as a way of asking questions; forces as simple pushes or pulls; how the air pushes; gravity and centre of balance; how sound is produced and travels through the air; simple electrical circuits.
Very exciting. children learn best when they are motivated and having fun, and the ‘learn differently’ shows deliver on both counts. Gillian Napier, Principal, Maralin Village PS
In this show we will explore the science behind floating and sinking, materials, and simple chemical reactions. All using equipment you might find in the kitchen. There’ll be cornflour slime, dancing raisins and popping film canisters. And some mess.
Topics: floating and sinking; materials; changing materials; fair tests.
