W5 Feb Events 1100 x 620 1

Exciting demonstrations suitable for KS1-KS3 students on 25 February 2022

'Explosive Food' for Primary/KS1 and KS2: 10.30am (Fully Booked)

Join Dan from the Royal Institution of Great Britain to find out about the incredible amount of energy contained in the food that goes into your mouth, in this show packed with exciting chemistry and physics demonstrations.

Experiments will include electrocuting gherkins and exploding flour, with plenty of loud bangs and a whole lot of mess!

'We've got the Power' for Secondary/KS3: 12.30pm (Fully Booked)

Witness some of the earliest demonstrations that showed how electricity can be generated and harnessed, developed by two of the Royal Institution’s most famous scientists, Faraday and Davy.

Explore the chemistry of fossil fuels, particularly the production of CO2, and the history of our understanding of CO2’s effect on the climate. There will be demonstrations of electricity being generated, stored, and used - and of course, we will be setting things on fire!

These lectures are open to KS1 & KS2 for the morning session and KS3 for the afternoon.

Funding towards transport costs may be available depending on school location, and the pupils will have free time after the workshops to take in all the new and exciting offerings within the newly refurbed W5!

Numbers are restricted, so if you would like to attend, please RSVP to [email protected] as soon as possible to secure your place!
