About

Have you ever seen 1000 ping bongs balls explode high into the air with a bang? Strap yourself in because this interactive virtual science excursion will have your students excitedly engaged in amazing STEM activities as they cheer, shout and laugh with joy. Through the power of technology, students will be transported from their schools, bedrooms and living rooms as they embark on an exciting and exclusive virtual experience behind the scenes of the Ranger Jamie Warehouse. Your enthusiastic Ranger will perform a series of adrenalin pumping experiments to showcase the power of HEAT! Using liquid nitrogen, watch as our Rangers turn water into ice instantly! See the delight on your students faces as we explode water balloons, launch air pressure rockets and defy the law of gravity as we launch 1000 ping pong balls into the air – all while learning about heat and the varying states of matter! Students will have the chance to investigate first-hand how solids and liquids change state, as well as the properties of natural and processed materials. Students will also learn about the scientific method as they identify and observe what a hypothesis is and learn to understand how humans use this knowledge to their advantage when creating new and improved technology. Unique, engaging and action-packed, this fun and memorable program will have your students feeling like professional scientists!

Time Frame

45min Virtual Excursion - Anytime of your choice

Time allocation for excursions can be tailored and adjusted to suit your individual school timetable and scheduling.

Syllabus Content Focus

Key Inquiry Questions:

  • How do materials change when heated and cooled?
  • Identify solids, liquids and gases as states of matter.

Changes of state
Students

  • identify solids, liquids and gases as states of matter
  • recognise that a change of state can be caused by adding or removing heat (ACSSU046)
  • describe examples of changes of state in everyday life
  • predict and observe the effects of adding or removing heat on a variety of solids and/or liquids

Activities

Students, Teachers and Rangers will all join the Zoom session at the allocated time.

  • The virtual excursion kicks off with a meet and greet with one of our enthusiastic Ranger Jamie guides reporting LIVE from behind the scenes in the Ranger Jamie Warehouse!
  • This is followed by an exciting and engaging science presentation where students identify and differentiate solids, liquids, gases and understand that you must ADD or REMOVE heat to change states of matter. Students will also learn about the scientific method, identify and observe what a hypothesis is and understand how humans use this knowledge to their advantage when creating new and improved technology.
  • Live teacher + student interaction with Ranger Jamie.
  • Activities include:
    • 1000 ping pong ball explosion
    • Chemical and air pressure rocket experiment
    • Turning liquid to ice instantly
    • Rocket fuel explosion
    • Mystery matter slime workshop
    • Exploding bag challenge
    • Lava lamp experiment

Special Note

Teachers will be required to moderate the zoom. We recommend that Teachers open a live chat for students to interact with our Rangers by typing comments, reactions and questions. The teacher can then pass on any student questions to the Ranger for them to answer!
