1 BRIGHT SPARKS World of gases From climate change to cooking dinner, the chemistry of gases is part of everyday life. Join us for a day, jam packed full of science tricks, messy experiments, fun games, science crafts and explore the science of gases that are sometimes invisible, but always around you. Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Dates 12-Feb 13-Feb 14-Feb 15-Feb 16-Feb Our Atmosphere Under Pressure Bubbles and Balloons Changing States Fizz, Pop, Bang am (optional) BREAKFAST CLUB BREAKFAST CLUB BREAKFAST CLUB BREAKFAST CLUB BREAKFAST CLUB am WELCOME & WARM-UP WELCOME & WARM-UP WELCOME & WARM-UP WELCOME & WARM-UP WELCOME & WARM-UP am ACTIVITY INTRODUCTION ACTIVITY INTRODUCTION ACTIVITY INTRODUCTION ACTIVITY INTRODUCTION ACTIVITY INTRODUCTION am am pm pm pm pm DAILY CAMP RE-CAP & WRAP UP CAMP 4.00 pm pm (optional) AFTERNOON CLUB AFTERNOON CLUB AFTERNOON CLUB AFTERNOON CLUB AFTERNOON CLUB

2 Monday 12th February 2018 Our Atmosphere Air is all around us, taking up space. We breathe it in and change the air pressure all the time, yet it always wants to be the same. Come on an awesome air adventure and have a tug of war with air, compete in our Bernoulli challenges, find out how clouds are formed and make your own flying cup toy! The Air we Breathe - take a closer look at the gases in Earth's atmosphere to see what they do for us Can we breathe on Mars? - Investigate our solar system & other planet atmospheres Look to the Sky - Investigate what air pressure and temperature have to do with cloud formation in the sky Craft - create a water cycle experiment in a bag The Vacuum of Space - Investigate a vacuum with a tug of war with air and Bell jar Bernoulli principle - Discover how flying toilet roll can help us to understand low and high air pressure Make - a Bernoulli wind bag Make - polystyrene cup flier

3 Tuesday 13th February 2018 Under Pressure How much does air pressure influence our everyday lives? Discover how air reacts under pressure; make balls levitate, create smoke rings, pressurise marshmallows! Air pressure can help us travel the world and can even help us to cross difficult terrain when a boat or car wouldn't be suitable. The highs and Lows of Pressure - Explore how air reacts to changes in pressure Use the Force - Make balls levitate and leap and marshmallows shrink and grow using air pressure Vortex generators - Can you throw air? Throwing a ball across a room is easy, but throwing air? That sounds like a bit more of a challenge! Make - mini air cannons Make - basic hydraulic arm Jack it up - Can air lift up heavy objects? Under pressure it can! Explore how with hydraulic. Air Takes up Space - Use air to crush a can, make the water level rise and power a car Make - Hover CDs, your own mini hover craft to take home

4 Wednesday 14th February 2018 Bubbles & Balloons There s a simple reason you can t walk on water: Humans are so big that the force of gravity overcomes the surface tension of water, making us sink. But for tiny creatures, surface tension allows them to walk effortlessly over ponds. Explore surface tension with fun experiments on balloons and bubbles. Surface Tension - If you turn a cup of water upside down, will it pour out? Not with this neat science trick. Break the Tension - Can you power a mini boat with just soap and water? Find out how in this science activity. Craft - a model water molecule Soap boat - Can you power a mini boat with just soap and water? In this science activity you will make a raft that is powered by surface tension Bed of nails - push a nail into a balloon and it will pop. But what will happen if we use more nails? Make - an unpoppable balloon! Make - Super stretchy bubble mixture Cube bubbles & bouncing bubbles - Explore the surface tension of bubbles with 2d & 3D shapes, giant bubbles and bubble tennis!

5 Thursday 15th February 2018 Changing States It s a matter of changing states. Expand your mind as we look at temperature on a molecular level. Witness a liquid boil in your bare hands, feel evaporation and use the power of heat to pop corn and launch a hot air balloon! Three states- Water can be either a solid, liquid or gas. But how does it change state? Investigate how temperature plays a part Thermal Underwear - Layers of clothing are good at keeping us warm when its cold. But what other materials would make good insulators? Hand Boilers - What if we told you that you could make water boil with your bare hands? Impossible, right? But volatile liquids can. Make - Grow Epsom salt crystals Make - Popcorn! A tasty experiment! Expanding Air- find out how heat changes the behaviour of air to take up more space. Hot Air Rises - hot air is lighter than cool air, because it has less mass per unit of volume. So let's prove it and explore convection currents Make - a hot air balloon

6 Friday 16th February 2018 Fizz, pop, bang Get busy in a chemistry lab! Use scientific equipment to discover reversible and irreversible reactions; witness temperature and colour changes, production of gas and make something new appear! Erupting flasks - When volcanoes erupt, the lava will flow for miles. Can you make the best eruption? What changes will you make? Fizzing Snowmen - Our snowman don't melt. They fizz. Find out why in this bubbly science activity. Self-inflating balloons - Balloons need air to inflate them. But in this experiment we can use a chemical reaction! Cork poppers - Many reactions release gas. But what would happen if we tried to bottle it up? Make - super slime! Learn more about non-newtonian fluids Make - Vitamin C powered canister rocket BIG BANG - discover the effect gases can have on fire. Some put them out, whilst other are more explosive! Round the week off with some great demonstrations and finish with a bang!
