About

Watch as the excitement heats up in this interactive and action packed science STEM based program! Prepare your students to get their hands dirty as they discover the effect of heat on the properties and behaviour of materials in making their very own SLIME! With exciting explosions, demonstrations and hands-on experiments, students will examine the result of combining different materials and discover how materials can be changed and manipulated. Investigate first-hand the different properties of solids, liquids and gases, and discover what happens when combining and separating certain mixtures. Exploding bag challenges, lava lamp making and pressure rockets will have students bursting with excitement and an eagerness to get involved in this unforgettable and exciting learning experience.
