Primary School Chemistry Workshops & Incursions for Primary Schools

Chemicals are everywhere. Learn about the composition and behavior of chemicals, and classify solids, liquids and gases. Understand that all substances consist of atoms which can combine to form molecules, and the relationship between atomic structure and the properties of substances. Compare physical changes with chemical changes, and learn all about different chemical reactions and how they result in the production of new chemicals.

Another great incursion from Mad About Science.  We wouldn’t use anybody else for our school science workshops!
