Grade 8

The Science Within

  • 50 min | $245
  • Cells and Systems
  • Critical Thinking

Get students excited about cells and systems, by being both the scientist and the subject. We’ll decipher hidden messages in a huge heartbeat and test the audience’s guts in a digestion race. Activities are combined with the latest in medical imagery and visualizations that connect cell structures and body systems. These experiments challenge students to think critically, make observations and form hypotheses about their own bodies on a range of scales.

Grade 9

Spectacular Reactions

  • 50 min | $245
  • Matter and Chemical Change
  • Critical Thinking

Every chemist secretly loves explosions. Experience a hit-list of awesome experiments as you investigate science at the atomic level. Theory is brought to life with fiery methane bubbles, the rapid decomposition of hydrogen peroxide and colourful fireballs. Students will be encouraged to make their own observations, form hypotheses and draw their own conclusions.
