Astronaut University
Let Lismore's Mobile Scientists take your class of Astronauts on a journey through Space. Explore the Sunny Solar System, Sparkling Stars, Plenty of Planets and the all important Rocket Power. The importance of Space Exploration to us Earthlings, day and night and forces will all be introduced in this 1 hour workshop. With hands-on experiments, lots of interaction and a blast off finale, this workshop is sure to be Out of This World!

Guts of Digestion
From the moment it touches the lips to the gory finale, pupils will love following real food on a journey through the digestive system. Children will learn how their body absorbs nutrients. They will also learn how we grow, run and jump and the role our digestive systems have in keeping us active! Hands on from start to finish, pupils will be delighted and disgusted all at once!

Chemistry Kids

Participation is paramount as pupils learn about Acids,Bases and the pH scales in an interactive workshop. Materials and how they change, heat and cooling and chemical uses in everyday life are all explored. They use stinky red cabbage juice and litmus paper as an indicator to determine the pH of everyday things. See your little chemists surprise as we add some bubble and fizz to theend of the workshop!

Shocking Science

Have some hair-raising fun with Electricity before building circuits, adding switches, testing insulators and conductors and learning about all the Energy and Forces that contribute to it. Magnetism is also explored and we bring along some Plasma Balls to discuss static electricity. We will introduce fuses and electrical safety and the uses of the humble wire in everyday life. Students
will be shockingly entertained!  

Crime Scene Investigation
Suspect everyone is his one hour forensic science workshop. Team work and note taking are key to the students cracking the case. Your class will deduce, decide and discover the secrets and tricks of real life C.S.I. agents. The workshop explores an application of science in everyday life and students will have to work as a team to piece the clues together. Using real life scientific techniques and materials like paper chromatography and D.N.A. extraction students get hands-on and become a detective for a day!

Antarctic Adventures :Take your class of explorers on an Antartic Adventure. We follow the footsteps of great Irish explorer Tom Crean in this one house interactive combined Science and Geography workshops. We use weather instruments, explore how life exists in extreme circumstances, see how the first exp;orers survived and see why Antarctica is actually a desert! Practical applications of the topics pf weather, heat, animal adaption and historic exploration are all covered. Your class is sure to have a Brrrilliant time!

Eureka: Close the textbooks and let Lismore's Mobile Scientists take your class through Science like they have never seen before. Beginning at the admiral Archimedes and taking in effervescent Einstein, boffin Boyle and curious Curie we showcase the world's most pioneering experiments of the greatest Scientists. This is a highly interactive and entertaining workshop which combines learning about Scientists from history and applying their discoveries to modern life. Find out why Archimedes jumped out of his bath, if Einstein really failed maths, why Marie Curie travelled in an X-Ray machine and why puppies and vacum pumps are a bad combination! The gore of history and magic of Science are sure to have you class shouting "Eureka!"
