Dynamic presenters who are scientists, engineers, technologists and more
A special e-vite to send virtually to your guests
A small gift for the birthday child
Choose from the following topics:
Discover the surprising science hiding in a bag of Skittles. Explore solubility, buoyancy, reactivity and investigate the odds of finding your favourite colour. How sweet it is!
COLOUR MY WORLD
Colour is everywhere! Without it our world would be a very dull place. Use colour to watch water defy gravity, explore rainbows and create a sun catcher. Use chemistry to create new colours. Curious? Come and explore some colourful science.
EWWW…THAT SCIENCE IS GROSS
Discover the science behind things that make you go…ewww! Make “snot” and sneeze it while exploring viscosity, identify various animals from their scat (i.e. poop) and learn about digestion while producing a burp in a bag. Join us on a gross but fun-filled science adventure!
GOOD CLEAN FUN
Fun with soap and water? You’ll be astonished when you investigate surface tension; explore the chemistry behind bath bombs; and make your own to use at home. It’ll be an explosion of chemical fun!
Become a forensic scientist and investigate this whodunit by examining clues left at the scene! Learn how to interpret evidence by exploring fabric samples and running a chemical analysis on a mystery solution. Take your own fingerprints and compare them to those left behind. Use chromatography to analyze the ink used in a mysterious note. Will you identify the culprit?
RIDE ‘N’ ROLL WITH SCIENCE
Welcome to the amusement park – where we’ll be bumping, spinning, zipping and rolling! Discover the actions and reactions of bumper cars. Explore the forces at work when you spin. Create a zipline while investigating gravity. Design a roller coaster to meet a challenge. It’s all about the physics of riding ‘n’ rolling!
SCIENCE MEETS ART!
Discover what happens when science meets art! Explore perception as you use shadows, colour, motion, and light to create art from science. You’ll make a puppet, a spinning top and a kaleidoscope, as well as design your own galaxy. “The greatest scientists are always artists as well!” (Albert Einstein)
SPREAD YOUR WINGS
Humans have always been fascinated by flight. Come and explore the wonderful world of birds and other things that fly. Make a birdfeeder; fly a glider; and explore how a taketombo works. We will wing our way through the sky.
Get sticky with it! Discover the science of sticky. Make your own glue from food products and test them to see how they hold. Create your own sticky art. And of course, there will be silly putty!
“Scientists in School ran my stepson’s virtual birthday party. The presenters ensured every child was heard and was following along with the experiments. The presenter was excellent with the children and everyone loved the experience! Thank you!”
