Mix and Make – Chemical Sciences Show and Workshop

Show

Science can happen in all sorts of places. From the kitchen to the bathroom, students explore what happens when we combine different things – both following a recipe and making up some of their own.

It’s a fun and lively show, mixing explanation with interactive demonstrations to showcase different scientific processes. And just how relevant science is to everyday life.

Workshop

Students continue to mix and make back in the kitchen. Ingredients are provided but there is a catch: we will change the amount of one ingredient and observe how it affects our mixture. Student scientists will watch their experiment change at each step using their eyes, hands, ears and nose, but their mouths at the teacher’s discretion.
