Colourful Chemistry (age 7+)

A chance to go behind the scenes in our lab for some unexpected reactions and fascinating surprises. 

In these workshops, you can discover the wonderful world of chemistry using Bunsen burners, metal salts, glowing reactions and more. A member of our team will guide you as you make predictions, conduct experiments and make observations and conclusions about different chemical reactions.

To experience the magic of chemistry, simply ask to sign up when you arrive for your visit at our front desk. There will be three workshops every day of the Festival of What If and the front desk team will let you know the times they are taking place. 

As the workshops are in our Lab, all children must be accompanied by an adult and must be aged 7 or over. Unfortunately, we can't accommodate younger siblings in these workshops as it wouldn't be safe to do so. 

Places for the workshops are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Workshops last around 45 minutes.

Please do give us a call on 0117 915 1000 (Mon to Friday, 9am to 5pm) if you would like any further information.
