    A FREE hands-on science experience for pre-schoolers aged 21/2+

     Get splishy and splashy, mad and messy, colourful and creative as we journey together through the world of science.

    Brought to Kimbolton Prep School by Mad Science, the leading science enrichment provider for children, each 45-minute workshop is a fun and interactive experience for you and your pre-schooler to enjoy together. Workshops offered vary each term; as an example recent ones have included:

    Workshop 1 @ 9.15am: Fantastic Flyers

    • Explore lift, gravity, thrust and drag in aviation. Put this theory into practice by making your very own stunt plane and take part in the Mad Science stunt plane race.

    Workshop 2 @ 11.15am: Lights Colour Action

    • Uncover the hidden components in ordinary light and colours. Includes hands-on chromatography activity, lasers, lights, shadows, diffractions and even an ‘indoor firework’ chemical energy display!

    Workshop 3 @ 2pm: Great Fire of London

    • Fire needs three things to burn … oxygen, heat and fuel! Watch and learn as your mad scientist guides you through the chemical reaction that caused the Great Fire of London and witness the icing sugar fire ball (that smells like candy floss)!
