Choose a workshop option and let the fun begin.
Workshop option 1: Chemistry Slime Lab
Children don a lab coat and goggles, roll up their sleeves and get stuck into the strange squishy world of slimy chemistry. Take a closer look at materials, polymers and environmental science – think slime, goo, jelly balls and seaweed! Squeeze a long stream of goo into the activator and get instant slime reaction. Play, pop and stretch to discover the fascinating application of these unusual materials. An edible plastic free water bottle, soil hydrator, food packaging, and water holder – the list is endless!
Learning and fun go hand in hand in this laboratory.
Workshop Option 2: Electronics Lab
A fun creative party for young makers and crafters. A unique introduction to renewable energy, electricity and circuits. Explore how to make a simple circuit that lights up an LED on a piece of paper. Children are challenged to power their creations with a renewable energy source. Kids can unleash their creativity as they experiment with paper circuit art to create and bring home a unique piece that really lights up.
