I love making slime! Then again, who doesn’t? It’s slippery, slurpy and very satisfying when you get it into your hands and squeeze it until it dribbles everywhere.
Yes, I know I’m a grown man, but as I teach fun and interactive science classes for young children – with the renowned Devon-based Sciencedipity – I get to show children how to chemically activate PVA glue into a semi-solid: make slime in another words!
It is, of course, all in the name of learning about chemistry, how to use science equipment safely, and getting children intrigued about what science is, and how fun it can be.
As Sciencedipity is led by Biomedical Scientist and qualified teacher, Ruth Maclaren, we run professional learning experiences under the government’s important Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) scheme. We travel around and promote the benefit of discovering these four education areas for later in life.
