OUR POTIONS WORKSHOPS ARE NOW FULLY BOOKED FOR THE 2017/2018 SCHOOL YEAR. We will be releasing our presentations and workshops during the Autumn term. Please check back at a later date for further information.
Our ‘Potions’ workshop is most suitable for year 5 and 6 pupils. Our workshop begins by introducing students to chemistry and it’s prevalence in everyday life. Students then conduct their own experiments using an indicator to test acidity of a variety of goods found around the home and kitchen.
Students record their data in a table which is discussed as a class during the results section.
Our workshop is delivered by undergraduate and postgraduate students along with members of staff. The workshop concludes with an “ask a scientist anything” section. The workshop takes approximately 1 hr and 15 minutes.
Our requirements for this workshop are as follows:
1. A teacher be present at all times.
2. Access to the classroom sink during the entirety of the workshop.
3. Use of the projector for the introduction talk.
4. A maximum of 35 students per class.

We are happy to deliver multiple classes during a school visit. Ideally a 15 minute gap in between each class would be great as it allows us to reset the activity!
