What’s the Matter?


A ‘What’s the Matter’ activity day introduces pupils to Chemistry through a series of hands-on activities and visual experiences.

  • See common objects in close up with a 200x zoom digital microscope (can even be used to inspect children’s bogeys!).
  • Learn about how atoms behave in solids, liquids and gases through fun role-play activities.
  • Play with magic custard (non-newtonian fluids for the sciencey among us!).
  • Turn glue into a solid ball.
  • Play ‘What’s the Matter’ Quiz ball.
