The art of science​

Science with balloons

Our teaching materials have been produced with schools in mind. These exciting experiments and exercises aim to demonstrate you some cool theories and help you understand a wide range of science - only through balloons. Yes, you read it right!

 

Within each lesson, a basic worksheet and a list of materials are provided, as well as a guidance risk assessment - all you have to do is deliver it! Simple... isn't it?

Working with schools for schools

We teamed up with a local school in Rugby, UK, to create a series of lessons and experiments with balloons, but the most exciting part is that they were created for children (drum roll)... by children! 

Don't worry if you're not a child anymore though! These lessons are by no means limited to age, so everyone can try and enjoy them really, whilst learning one thing or two about science.

If there’s a lesson to be learnt using balloons, we’ve seen it and now we want to share it with you!
