[WATCH] How to Have Fun with Kitchen Chemistry!

If you’re looking for something fun to do with your child at home, have you ever tried kitchen chemistry? We have a fun video from Scientific Sue that shows you a few easy science experiments for kids to try out yourself!

In this video Sue McGrath (a.k.a. ‘Scientific Sue‘) takes us through some fun science experiments using some simple kitchen chemistry. Sue created the video for Science Week in Ireland, Science Week is managed by Science Foundation Ireland’s SFI Discover programme, designed to get kids interested in science.

If you enjoyed watching this video, why not come along and get interactive with Science Foundation Ireland who will be at the National Ploughing Championships, Ratheniska, Co Laois between 22nd & 24th September.

LogoThe exhibit will include shows from Scientific Sue and interactive workshops from SFI Funded Research Centres such as MaREI, INFANT and APC including the following;

  • ‘How smart are your clothes’
  • ‘How to mend a broken heart’
  • ‘Food is funky’ and
  • ‘Oceans of energy’.

You will also be able to see Physics Buskers and Alimentary Adventures, a walk through tour of your digestive system! And for older kids, Smart Futures volunteers with backgrounds in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) will be on hand to provide advice to secondary school students and parents about the opportunities a career in STEM brings.
