Primary Schools

We hold activities for primary schools all year round. These are available upon request.


We can run a range of experiments and demonstrations linked to a various areas of the national curriculum.

Balloon rockets

This is a simple investigation teaching young students many important scientific elements regarding thrust, air resistance and aerodynamics.

Bridge over cardboard water

Students learn the importance of structure and teamwork to see who can produce the strongest bridge out of everyday materials.

Disappearing ink

Students are taught simple acid-base theory to explain some important chemical concepts.

Layered liquids

Students learn the basics of why some liquids are miscible together and others are not.

We also have a bank of experiments that can be used 'just for fun' to show students the excitement that chemistry can offer. These are aimed to enthuse students into thinking about studying sciences later in their education without losing interest at a young age.
