Atomic Kids is SOLD OUT
In this hands-on workshop, students discover atoms and molecules – the tiny building blocks of everything around us. They will explore and physically feel different elements including gold, zinc, carbon, hydrogen and helium, interpret the Periodic Table (which is a kind of alphabet of the universe), construct models of molecules, devise their own chemical formulas, discover what makes certain chemicals react, get hands-on with chemical reactions and watch some chemicals explode in front of their very eyes.
Explore the microscopic world of atoms. The everyday world that we can see and touch, is connected to an invisible microscopic world of astonishingly small atoms. Atomic Theory explores this microscopic world.
Atomic Theory is seen by many as science’s biggest idea and is the key concept that unlocks the rest of the sciences. It is based around the notion that all matter is made up of tiny invisible particles known as atoms. Everyone, including primary school students, can understand Atomic Theory. If learnt early, this understanding can give your child a head start in their science education.
Australian scientists have made discoveries that have changed the world – now it’s time to inspire our next generation!
Suitable for ages 9 -12.
