Science in the Library Kitchen – School Holiday Workshop

July 7 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am


Explore scientific principles in the Library Kitchen – with explosive results!

Our STEM Kitchen experts are donning their protective goggles and putting the clean-up crew on standby because things are going to ERUPT in the Library Kitchen!

Become an amateur volcanologist these holidays as we explore the scientific principles of chemical reactions and nucleation and learn about geophysics, geochemistry and seismology.

That’s right; it’s time to make a volcano!

Wear some old clothes, because this can get messy!

We are running two sessions of this activity:

  • Monday 5 July 2021 – 10:00am-11:30am
  • Wednesday 7 July 2021 – 10:00am-11:30am
