This session aims to build participant knowledge of chemistry through studying the fire triangle and how it influences our world and its many different materials.

Burn, Burn, Burn involves:

  • Examining the properties of a variety of different materials
  • Making observations of how each material burns (reactions, smells, burning rates)
  • Discovering where the material goes once it’s been burnt
  • Learning the differences between heating and burning
  • Finding out how to conduct a chemical experiment in a safe manner
  • Learning about the kind of careers you can get in Chemistry

  • Maths and numeracy – measurement, calculation
  • Teamworking
  • Problem-solving
  • Critical-thinking
  • IT skills

All activities within the session can be tailored to requirements. The depth that each topic is covered depends on the ages, key stage and abilities of participants, with more complex elements reserved for upper key stages. Please contact us to discuss your requirements for your group.
