Our After School Interactive Science Labs are the perfect mix of fast and furious demonstrations in addition to hands-on make & do experiments and activities. It is mess and hassle free and the children will have lots of fun!
We are an innovative initiative passionate about bringing a love of science and learning to primary school aged children.
Our inclusive , hands-on approach is unique . We are not a science class, the children make and do their own experiments , wearing their lab coats and goggles, using real scientific equipment including a university grade Van Der Graff Generator.
Our small group of hand-picked scientists ( MSc & pHD ) are Garda cleared and Insured. Most of us are parents ourselves and all have extensive experience caring for children.
Some of our after-school activities include :
Slime making ( Long-chain polymerisation , Newtonian & Non-Newtonian fluids)
Smoke cannons ( Force, Vectors)
Rockets ( Newtons Law’s of Motion & the Bernoulli effect)
Van Der Graff generator & plasma ball ( electricity )
Coke&Mentos Geyser ( force and nucleation)
Giant Bubbles/ bubbles on fire ( the physics of bubbles)
Elephant Toothpaste ( Hydrogen peroxide , Potassium Iodide chemical reaction : Exothermic reactions)
Dinosaur Digs (the children dress as palaeontologists and using real geological tools, they dig for fossils in our portable dig sites.)
Make your own lava lamp ( density)
The Solar System
Glowing gherkins ( UV light)
Dry Ice Maddness
All of our sessions are risk assessed and closely supervised. We can run science club 2 years without repeating a session.
