5810419 Sensational Science Week

Tutor: Sara Grey

Location: Uppingham School


Come and enjoy a week of sensational science. If you like making slime, launching dry ice rockets or building parachutes to land raw eggs safely, then this week is for you. The week is full of hands on science experiments and demonstrations: from flying teabags, to screaming jelly babies to dry ice extravaganza. Interspersed will be team challenges and building projects including making CD hovercrafts, drinks can dragsters and spaghetti-marshmallow towers. Try your hand at science magic tricks, coin and matchstick puzzles. Can you be the super scientist of the week? Also, you will be given a booklet, which shows you how you can safely perform many of these experiments at home and explains the science behind each experiment.

This fun and interactive week will take place in Uppingham School’s state-of-the-art Science Centre and will be led by Sara Grey, a local specialist science tutor.
