Description of services: ​

​​Fizzics Education has been an award-wining provider of interactive science workshops and shows since 2004. Virtual excursions with Fizzics are hands-on. On booking you will receive a .pdf file which will detail simple materials that you can pick up from the local shops that will allow your students to actively participate in the lesson. Fizzics Education presents to approximately 300,000 children each year through its interactive science outreach programs in schools, museums, vacation care centres, corporate bodies and private events across Australia and beyond. ​

Most popular excursions:​

Liquid Nitrogen Show

Find out how solids, liquids and gases change when rapidly heated and cooled. Smash a squash ball! Shrink a balloon instantly! What happens to living things if they are frozen? How can Newton's 3rd Law of Motion explain a liquid nitrogen sprinkler? Pop can lids and expand balloons... + many others as you learn about pressure, forces and changes in states of matter. 

Your class will run experiments during the event using materials supplied by your school. Fizzics Education will provide background information required prior to the event date. Should you require a different day please contact us and we'll arrange a suitable time for you! Short video: https://player.vimeo.com/video/79643962 

Australian Curriculum Outcomes - Primary school 

A change of state between solid and liquid can be caused by adding or removing heat (ACSSU046) Heat can be produced in many ways and can move from one object to another. (ACSSU049) Forces can be exerted by one object on another through direct contact or from a distance (ACSSU076) Solids, liquids and gases have different observable properties and behave in different ways (ACSSU077)

Target audience: Class of 30 - all grades

Cost: $150

Human Body - Look at the major body systems and senses

Students look at major body systems and how the five senses work in this engaging workshop! Where is heat in your body conserved? How do the lungs work? Heart, kidneys, bones, liver and other vital organs are discussed. What happens to food when I swallow? Also covers basic hygiene practices, reflexes, inheritance and the components of skin, blood and hair.

Your class will have a chance to run experiments during the event using materials provided by your school.

Weather and Pressure

What is air pressure? Why are low and high pressure areas important? How are clouds formed? What is our atmosphere made of anyway? What conditions are needed to cause tornadoes? And more... 

Students will gain an appreciation of meteorology and gain insight into how our climate operates.
You will also get to run some simple science experiments in your room on air pressure.

Australian Curriculum Outcomes: Science Content 

Earth's surface changes over time as a result of natural processes and human activity. (ACSSU075) Sudden geological changes or extreme weather conditions can affect Earth's surface. (ACSSU096) Forces can be exerted by one object on another through direct contact or from a distance. (ACSSU076) Heat can be produced in many ways and can move from one object to another. (ACSSU049)
