Sadly, the role of a teacher requires more hours than ever for less pay, and that’s not about to change anytime soon it seems! Yet still it’s expected that you can come up with these massive science experiments and incredible visual displays! Why not let The Fab Lab take the stress away and come to your school to excite and inspire your pupils?
In over 10 years of experience working with schools and primary aged pupils we have entertained tens of thousands of children. Whilst we try our best to tie into the national curriculum with our experiments, our aim isn’t to educate children through our workshops, it’s to inspire and leave a lasting hunger for more science.
We have three different workshops to offer schools for the 2017 – 2018 academic year, all of which have proven to be extremely successful. Please see below for our selection of workshops:
The Human Body
With a look at how the digestive system works, our heart rate changes with exercise and of course the composition of blood, our biological workshop is guaranteed to educate and entertain your pupils!
Slime making is undoubtedly the pokemon cards of 2018 with pupils making it as often as possible in as many different ways as possible, and parents consistently searching Hobbycraft and Amazon for the right ingredients, but do children actually understand what slime is? Is it a solid or a liquid? This workshop looks at slime, states of matter, changes in state and most excitingly Oobleck – a chemical that is both a solid and a liquid at the same time.
Electricity is made up of electrons, and in this workshop children see how those electrons move and transfer to create electric shocks, balloons stick to the wall and lots more! This interactive workshop guarantees to have your pupils jumping with excitement, and possibly with shock!
