A summary

Chemistry is definitely exciting, especially when trying to find out what goes with a bang! Come and try some fabulous chemistry experiments and see some spectacular demonstrations. In this workshop you will carry out many of the experiments yourself, making up solutions and seeing for yourself what reactions you can make happen when you add chemicals together. It's loads of fun and can be a bit messy so don't wear your best clothes! Come and join us and be prepared to be inspired

Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.

We may have a waiting list for the workshop therefore if you are unable to attend please let us know at least 48 hours in advance so that we can offer the place to another child. If you do not let us know that you are not coming and have booked more than one workshop, we have the right to cancel any subsequent bookings. We will inform you of this decision.
