Making Sense of the Living World is a strand of the science curriculum that attracts a lot of interest from primary school-age students, because many TV programmes feature DNA and Forensic Science in their story lines. Primary school age groups are also one where parents are willing to attend events in support of their children's education. Fun activities break barriers, get parent and child co-operating and provide a novel 'learning' setting.

The physical world is the strand of curriculum through which students gain an understanding of interactions between parts of the physical world and of the ways in which they can be represented. This activity aims to encourage collaboration between adults and children, as well as shape basic knowledge of electrical energy and why scientists and engineers are interested in it.

This activity covers some of the forces encountered in the Physical World, and aims to encourage collaboration between adults and children, as well as shape basic knowledge of air pressure and the laws of motion. Scientists and engineers can harness this knowledge to make objects move more efficiently.

Chromatography is a technique used to obtain pure compounds from mixtures. Many substances are made of a number of different compounds, which you can’t always tell from looking at them. Scientists use the chemical properties of compounds to separate and identify the components of a mixture.
