We also organize Science Experiments Performances and Workshops. A Day with Labs is a whole day event during which everybody takes part in an interactive Science Experiments Performance. Children can observe many phenomena taking place in real life. In an easy way we explain them and show how volcanoes explode, artificial blood is created, steam clouds are made and much more. Everything is supervised by our experienced instructors, who are fully DBS checked.
Are experiments safe?
All of our experiments are completely safe. We use only certified equipment and chemicals. We follow all the health and safety rules. Moreover we start each performance with introduction about health and safety rules during the work in a laboratory.
What experiments do we perform?
Our performances contain physical, mechanical and chemical experiments. Children can observe and experience many phenomena taking place in real life like magnetism, different types of chemical reactions, heat flow, liquid and fluid properties and much more. We explain them in an intelligible for children way.
How does the performance look like?
We start each performance with discussion about health and safety rules which we have to follow in a laboratory. We pick up a theme which we will follow during all the show. We perform each experiment explaining children what component do we use for it, what can we use them for, where can we find them in the real life. For each experiment we invite volunteers from the audience, who will help us to perform it. All the experiments are supervised by an experienced instructor who is fully DBS checked. Each performance lasts for 1.5 hours.
What do children learn about during performance?
We teach children about basic physical phenomena in real life like dissolution, heat flow, crystallization, phase changes, gravity and magnetism. We teach them about chemical reactions like precipitation, complexation, combustion and much more. We do it in intelligible for children way, avoiding using complex names and formulas. We focus on practical aspect of our shows – children will remember substances, colors and what happens in particular experiments because we link them to what they know and are familiar with.
What links to the national curriculum do we have?
From this academic year students in KS1 and lower KS2 should be taught about properties of substances, phase changes, forces and reactions. They should experience materials in their environment. We let them to observe physical and chemical phenomena using only the highest quality equipment and chemicals.
