Forget Excursions! Book Incursions!
We are continually developing new workshops – just ask what we have! We have Science Toys, The Science of Juggling, Rocks and Minerals, Space Colonies, States of Matter and so much more. We are always looking for new ways to invigorate your love for science!
We come to you and bring all equipment and qualified staff! What could be easier and more fun?
Workshops are designed for students to have a hands-on experience with equipment provided by SciWorld. Sessions include a presenter to guide students through initial theory, then oversee students as they work in groups or independently. Workshops can be run in a classroom or hall with tables, and are suited to a maximum of 30 students. Science Shows are designed for 50 or more students at a time to watch some. If you have larger vacation care or public sessions, then we can bring additional presenters. We can accommodate almost anything! experiments.
60 minutes. 30 students per workshop.
Learn about science toys, make some of your own and explore the physics behind sound and energy toys. From musical kazoos to marshmallow catapults, you learn, make (and keep everything you make) in this fun hands on workshop!

What We Need
When we come to your school we will need: a parking space for our van; a classroom where we can move the tables around (or a big room or hall for the StarDome/ Starlab or big shows); access to powerpoints (some shows also require water nearby) and any other information about getting to you, that you might find useful. Setup time can vary from 30 minutes to 90 minutes depending on your choice of sessions.
