Project Description

Mad Science Show

A jam-packed 60-minute show of big WOW science madness!  There’s giant smoke vortices, levitating beach balls, flying toilet paper, flour fireballs, hair-raising electricity, and lots of learning!

  • Level: Foundation to Level 6

  • Duration: 60 minutes

  • Numbers: Suitable for up to 180 students

  • Cost: $650 plus GST per show

This MAD SCIENCE SHOW is a science sampler to immerse students in science, and whet their appetite. It is full of demonstrations and includes some audience participation. Please see our other workshops if you require more of a hands-on experience for your students.

Air, electricity & fire!

  • Air is invisible, odourless, all around, takes up space, and exerts a pressure. It can also be used as a weapon! Look out for an airzooka assault and some giant smoke vortex rings.

  • We fly toilet paper using Bernoulli’s principle, and levitate beach balls. Who will win the bag blowing contest with what they’ve learnt about air?

  • There are two types of electricity: flowing and static. We make some super static electricity with our Van de Graaff Generator. Watch wool fly, fluttering confetti fireworks, and a hair-raising demonstration.

  • We end with FIRE! Learn about the fire triangle, and how flour can burn under the right conditions.

Anneliese engaged the students really well. They were thrilled to be able to take home snow and the UV bead keyring.

Lisa from Mad About Science is absolutely brilliant (so is the whole team really!). She was amazing with the kids, great with our kids with additional needs and just ran the experiments in a wonderfully fun and interactive way. I couldn’t recommend Mad About Science highly enough.
