Materials (Key Stage 2) in the Science Theatre
Investigate the different types of materials that make up our Universe.
Which material takes up most of the space in a room? And what are the gasses that make up the air around us?
Race bubbles to explore properties of liquids, and sort solids into different groups. Can you identify solids that are natural from those that are made? Predict what happens to solids in severe cold – can you make a nail out of blutack with the help of liquid nitrogen? Can you freeze and thaw a flower? What happens when you rapidly cool air-filled balloons?
Woodland Wonders (Foundation Phase) in the Planetarium
Why is Mercury covered with craters and Mars too cold for us to live on?
Explore our Solar System and find out why Earth’s position amongst the planets is perfect for life. What did astronauts find when they visited the moon?
Find out how we learn about planets, galaxies and stars that we haven’t visited and discover how long it would take to drive a car to the moon, or to walk around the whole Earth.
