Chelmsford Museum has created the perfect formula for the school summer holidays: crazy science experiments, interactive learning and acres of space for children to let off steam!
This summer Chelmsford Museum is launching ‘Summer of Science’ at Sandford Mill, Chelmsford, where kids will be filled with wonder when they take part in fun experiments and discover why a balloon doesn’t explode with a giant needle in it, and how to make a toilet roll fly!
Each Friday throughout the school holidays the ‘Summer of Science’ sessions will be jam-packed with ‘edutainment’ in the Science Theatre from Mad Science including carbon dioxide balloon racing, hands-on workshops to create the colours of the rainbow – plus awesome explosions – as well as exploring the science of flight with flying displays from birds of prey, and other exciting activities.
Sandford Mill is part of Chelmsford Museums and is located at Sandford Mill Road, Chelmsford, CM2 6NY. Summer of Science takes place every Friday from 27 July until 31 August at Sandford Mill, there will be two sessions each day, one at 10am to 12.30pm, and one at 2pm to 4.30pm. The cost of each session is £5 per person, with children aged up to 2 years old free. Sessions must be booked in advance at www.chelmsford.gov.uk/museumevents.
