This resource pack contains twelve 'hands on’ activities linked to different aspects of the science of materials and states of matter. Aimed at learners of all ages, they would be particularly suitable for use at primary level to demonstrate key ideas and concepts and to spark an interest in chemistry. Containing background information, notes on running the activities and ideas for further investigation, they are an ideal way for schools, science clubs and even families to take part in chemistry hands-on activities. The activities are: * Bakelite plastic / silly putty * Burp in a pot (Alka Seltzer rockets) * Crazy cubes * Splitting sweets * Make a rainbow fish * Colourful combustion * Honeycomb toffee * Dressing the salad * Money laundering * It's slime time! * Bubble tennis * Ready, Bread-y, Go! This resource is part of the British Science Association’s National Science & Engineering Week activity pack series and have been produced in collaboration with the Royal Society of Chemistry.
