Saturday Science Club Abingdon – Colour Catchers (ages 5-9)
Catch a rainbow with amazing colour chemistry at this month’s Saturday Science Club. Try your hand at ‘pen chromatography’ and discover hidden hues in felt-tip pens. Experiment with kitchen science using colour-changing vegetables, or write secret messages with lemon juice and baking powder. Mix up liquids, cups and a paper towel and see a walking rainbow before your very eyes – a great trick of the light to ‘wow’ friends and family at home!
All Saturday Club sessions must be accompanied by an adult. These family workshops are designed for you and your child to learn from each other and work together while trying out new things.
Our fun sessions for ages 5-9 are designed to engage children and their families with STEM: science, technology, engineering and maths. Through entertaining demos and hands-on activities, children have a chance to learn, explore, question and investigate different areas of science. Each month has a different theme, so you can try something new each time if you attend regularly.
Our skilled staff ensure that every child can access the activities and differentiate to engage all children.
If your child has specific additional needs, please get in touch via [email protected] to discuss how they can be best supported.
