Cool Science At Your School
At Lizzy's Loonies Science, our objective is to spark everyone’s imagination, so that they can see that science can be fun!
We present a wide selection of science days and workshops for everyone. Science days start with a show for everyone on ‘Science with Wow’! Then we run workshops for groups on a fun science subject appropriate to the audience. The day ends with a finale with firing water rockets, if space and weather permits.
The sessions are a mixture of demonstrations by the presenter and hands-on activities. There is no special equipment used, all of the experiments can be easily reproduced at home. Sessions are designed for all age groups from reception class and up.
We cover topics from across the science curriculum including 'Forces', 'Fizz Pop Bang', ‘The Body’, ‘The World and The Environment’, ‘Physical Processes’ and ‘Materials’.
How can we help your school?
Well, you may not have experienced Science Week before so let us give you an idea of what to expect when Lizzy's Science visit your school:-
We start the day with an Assembly that lasts around 45 minutes. We jump straight in with some brilliant Science based experiments. Our Scientists will engage and entertain the children with some well known science-based topics and will use some simple experiments to demonstrate the theories behind them
After the Assembly we’ll visit 6 or 7 classes in order that the children can participate in a number of “hands-on” experiments
Each class will be divided into groups of 5 or 6 children in order to rotate the experiments, and to ensure that the children have plenty of opportunity to take part and get involved with all of the activities
Each classroom session will last around 30 – 45 minutes, with typically four to six activities
If you’ve got a particular topic you’d like us to cover then just let us know. We’ll liaise with you before the workshop to make sure everything runs smoothly and, most of all, that the kids have fun!
Don’t forget that we get very booked up during Science Week – be sure to Call Us or Send an Enquiry well in advance!
Make your Science Week a Wow!!!
A Lizzy's Loonies Science Assembly is a great way to ignite an interest in Science while still having fun. Typically, our Science Assemblies last from 20 minutes up to 1 hour and are delivered to the entire school.
For Key Stage 1 children the Assembly is normally around 40 to 45 minutes, with Key Stage 2 children having around 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Although they don’t provide the opportunity for the children to take part themselves in the experiments, the Science Assembly aims to leave children with a curiosity to find out more about the topics we have covered and excite & prepare them for the upcoming workshops. They’ll certainly leave with a smile on their face!
The best way to get children fully involved in Science is to let them loose with simple but inspiring activities and experiments, all in a controlled environment.
Working in small groups within their class, they’ll follow simple step-by-step instructions in order to perform the activity or experiment. Smiles are included free!
We find that most workshops last for around 30 to 45 minutes and the children get to perform around four to six activities, depending on class size.
