British Science Week: Schools

Event Date: Friday 8 March - Friday 15 March

A week of special programmes celebrating British Science Week 2019!

Make British Science Week go off with a BIG BANG by bringing your class to Eureka!

  • The Energy Show – KS1 and KS2 (must be booked)
    Book an exciting 45 minute interactive science show all about energy. Explore what energy is, the different types of energy and how energy can change from one type to another. Available as KS1 and KS2 options.This show brings to life just how amazing energy is. Through explosive experiments and hands-on science demos your pupils will learn that energy is everywhere and can never be created or destroyed only changed. Pupils will find out how energy moves through their bodies to complete an electrical circuit and see a chemical reaction explode on their hand! We’ll also introduce friction as a form of energy loss, complete with a giant friction tug of war.
