Smelly Science FULL
Limited Capacity full

Actually, there's very little Lego involved! It's 150 years since the development of the periodic table. Although we provide children with maps of what the world looks like, we often hold off before a child experiences this 'map' of the building blocks of the entire universe! Frequently, the periodic table is stuck into the secondary science book with the expectation that they'll just 'get it'. This workshop will try to encourage an elementary (pun intended) understanding of the elements and the periodic table at primary school level. Most definitely NOT for chemistry geeks - but they're welcome too!

The workshop will outline the science behind smell and fragrances, and afford the opportunity for teachers to touch upon the stages required to design and blend their own fragrance. The purpose is to upskill teachers and others so they can talk effectively and correctly about this interesting topic to their children. The small bottle of fragrance produced will be available to be taken away with the course delegate. Delegates will need to bring a small bottle of water with them.
