Slime TimeSlime is a strange substance. Left by itself, it oozes like a liquid, but give it a push or a pull and it's stiff like a solid. Brought to you by the Science Museum Group, this workshop explores how materials change and transform, as participants make their very own slippery slime to take home.
Mission to MarsWhat’s needed to plan a mission to Mars? A lot of science, for sure. This workshop will reveal the principles behind launching rockets and satellites into space, take a big look at our solar system, and ask, ‘could there really be alien life out there?’ The Science Museum Group will lead the participants to make their own rockets and try to steer them to Mars!
What’s it Like Being a Scientist?You will meet scientists who will re-enact one of the greatest scientific experiments of all time - Galileo’s Leaning Tower of Pisa experiment. They will let you in on what it feels like to be a scientist doing cutting-edge research in modern day, and will lead the entire audience in a scientific experiment that everyone can do!
Super Science!In a fun-filled show, packed with facts and stats, the Ministry of Science team will demonstrate a raft of cool experiments, including how chemicals react in surprising ways, some “shocking” results from physics, and a chance to discover just how cold liquid nitrogen really is!
Science CircusAudiences will giggle as juggler Rhys Thomas tries to outwit gravity with a bowling ball and a feather, marvel as he turns a sphere into a gyroscope that keeps stable on a kid’s finger, and laugh as he tries to balance on a tall unicycle, does cowboy rope tricks and daringly risks his mum’s plates in a throw-down with inertia!
The Gollyology ShowUsing his super powers of creativity, education and practice, Rhys Thomas takes on circus challenges that reveal the secrets of the universe.
Hands on (Hands off!)In this show, the Ministry of Science team will roll out some of their favourite demonstrations with plenty of opportunity for the audience to get hands-on, both during the show and later at home. The finish, however, is definitely hands-off for the audiences as the fun ramps up to the most explosive experiment of all.
Down To EarthAnturus will show what renewable energy is doing for the world, and will create wind catchers to reveal how much energy there is in wind. The Australian Museum’s science team will demonstrate surprising reactions of matter in various states and density, and will help us visualise what happens in the lead-up to a volcanic eruption!
Teacher Development WorkshopThis workshop will share a range of practical approaches to help you engage your students with science. Using tried and tested resources, we will explore ideas for connecting classroom learning with your students’ everyday lives to demonstrate the relevance of science and methods for developing skills that are useful for science.
High IceWhat does it take to climb the world’s highest peaks? Why should we care that permanent ice caps and many glaciers are disappearing from the earth? Fresh back from climbing North Africa’s highest peak, Alpinist Huw James will take us on a journey through the world’s highest ice.
Science CircusStudents will giggle as juggler Rhys Thomas tries to outwit gravity with a bowling ball and a feather, marvel as he turns a sphere into a gyroscope that keeps stable on a kid’s finger, and laugh as he tries to balance on a tall unicycle, does cowboy rope tricks and daringly risks his mum’s plates in a throw-down with inertia!
It Takes GutsCome with the Science Museum Group on a journey of food from your mouth! Discover how our bodies use the nutrients in our food to keep us healthy, see real video footage of people’s insides, and find out exactly why poo is brown.
The Power of Science!Scientists bring science to life for your students through experiments and demonstrations that connect the study of science with their everyday experiences. Using their own scientific research, our experts will challenge students to take part in a process of discovery!
The Exploration StationCome with Anturus on a journey around the world! Looking at some of the craziest scientific phenomena on the planet: geysers that spew water high into the air, tornados made out of fire, and volcanos that create lightning clouds – our planet has it all!
The Minis Try ScienceThe Ministry of Science will bring a selection of their top experiments to your school to let the Minis Try Science. Students will get the chance to go hands-on with the team, exploring science through Friction Books, a Van de Graaff generator and plasma ball, and the weird and wonderful world of chemical reactions.
Feel the ForceThe Science Museum Group, Sir Isaac Newton and Phil the Stunt Frog will help deliver this unforgettable collection of live demonstrations for a closer look at the forces that shape our world.
