5500419 Sensational Science Week

Tutor: Sara Grey

Location: Uppingham School

Join Professor Fizz Gigg and Detective Slimeball for a fun week of personal and team challenges involving science experiments, engineering and logic. You will get to see teabags fly, hear jellybabies scream, make elephant toothpaste and create your own erupting volcano. Follow the clues as you work out 'Whodunit?’ using invisible ink and see who can make their slime bounce the highest! Try some of the amazing things that be done with dry ice, and see if you can create a bubble inside a bubble.
This fun and interactive week will take place in Uppingham School’s brand new state-of-the-art Science Centre, and will be led by Sara Grey, a specialist science tutor, along with senior science technician Nadia Nadeem
A number of subsidised places are available on this course.  Please see the Windmill House Trust page for details and qualifying criteria.
