It was held in the drama studio after the school day and we were thrilled when over 100 people came.

The whole school science team supported us as did other members of staff.
We shared our show I Wasn't Expecting That! which is an extravaganza of colour changes, fire balls, bangs, pops and dry ice.
The audience was really enthusiastic so we had plenty of volunteers to help us.

After a few chemistry surprises we shared some of our smart materials which everyone was interested in getting their hands on.

Then we heated everything up by creating a milk powder fire ball and our whoosh bottle.
The finale was dry ice all the way.
Spooky smoke, screaming spoons and crystal balls were followed by blowing up a member of the audience.
Then we trapped the dry ice in large canisters and popped off the lids with some very satisfying if unexpected bangs.
Great fun was had by all.
Thank you to the Science team for organising such a super evening.
There is a great write up on the school website at the moment - so we have reporduced it here
Thank you to staff at the school for these great images
