All Change at Chester

We had a super day at Upton Heath Primary School Chester as part of their science week.
The school are having an incredible time with visits from all sorts of scientists including Techniquest, Chester zoo rangers, nurses as well as working with a local High school. They even had a visit from the Prime Minister....not to do science though!!

The day started with two All Change shows - the first for years 4,5,and 6 followed after break by years 2,3,4.
The show is full of exciting materials showing how solids, liquids and gases behave. We raced some gloopy liquids and learnt a new word - VISCOSITY.

We had enormous fun with dry ice creating huge clouds tumbling from the tables.

We had a fire rainbow and iron filings sparklers  and magnesium

and then Helen made a fire ball from custard powder which stunned the audience as you can see from the Twitter comment!

We even tried to blow up one of the teachers........

After lunch we were the guests of year 4 Lime class who gave us their room for the afternoon.
They were able to get up close and personal with some of the equipment from the show and to try out some of our other incredible gadgets and gizmos. Then we all made bubble gum fragranced bath bombs to take home.
We stayed in the classroom as Lime class swapped with their other year 4 class so we could do it all again.
At the very end of the day with just a few minutes before home time Lime class came back to their own room and we made a huge electric circuit with all the pupils and us and our Energy sticks.

Thank you to Ms Preston for organising such a super day.

It is February and our birthday month
I can't believe that it is three years since we started our company.
It was a great leap for Helen and I to set up Science2U but we knew that sharing science was important to us and that with transport costs being so high many schools just couldn't afford to go out on a visit.
With risk assessments and getting cover and collecting money organising a school visit to a local science centre can be quite a headache.
Our aim is to make getting great science in schools as easy as possible.
So we do all the work - all you need is a space.

To celebrate our 1/3rd birthday we have decided to offer a 1/3 discount to every booking made during our birthday month.

The small print: bookings need to be made and secured with a deposit during February but the actual event can take place at any time during this current school year APART from British Science Week
( 16th - 22nd March )

We offer a range of shows and workshops at a price that makes it possible for even the very small schools to enjoy a science event.
Some of the small schools join together with their cluster schools,some secondary schools bring in their feeder primary schools for a science day.
  Prices vary depending on school size and what you actually want to do - call us for a quote.

Check out our website and see what we can do for you.
Share in our celebrations!
