Circus night around the Scientist badge
constellations - luminous paint and black paper
Spinning card snakes and candles
balloons and fizzy drinks
Vinegar and baking soda and polystyrene cups
ice cream making with salt and ice
Six activity stations for the cubs to work around in a circus pattern, learning about different aspects of Science and speaking about what the main points are about the station.
constellations - luminous paint and black paper - copy constellations, turn lights out and see who can identify the correct constellations
Spinning snakes and candles - this looks at how hot air rises, the snake should spin
balloons and fizzy drinks -although not technically a solution, it is chemistry as it looks at how gases (CO2) expands in the balloon
Vinegar and baking soda and polystyrene cups - chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar, the soap allows reaction to rise
ice cream making with salt and ice - the ice cream is made by the salt reducing the temperature of ice, thereby freezing the cream.
