Meet us online on Wednesday 19 October at 10am for a FREE fun-filled celebration of colour and chemistry in this 45 minute event for families with children aged 3+.

 

Join us live from your home, school or nursery at 10am to explore the chemistry of colour with a special reading of Howard the Average Gecko by author Wendy Meddour. Then, learn some Makaton, sing along to our gecko song and join in as our resident chemist Harriet shares some colourful chemistry experiments: extracting DNA from strawberries and exploring the colours of Smarties! 

 

We’ll send you a list of materials and instructions so that you can try out our experiments yourself! We recommend joining us for the whole event, then trying out the experiments afterwards. A recording of the event will be available through YouTube so that you can watch the experiments again.
