Experimental Potions

When: 30 May 2024

Where: The Red Dragon Centre

Join Experimental Science at The Red Dragon Centre on Thursday 30 May to explore the wizarding world!

This brand new potions workshop is entirely hands-on using scientific/wizarding equipment. First the children will make their very own wands, then they will begin mixing chemicals and gruesome ingredients to create lots of spellbinding potions including:

  • Colour changing potions
  • Polyjuice Potion (are you brave enough to drink it?)
  • Fizzing potions
  • Erupting cauldrons
  • Finally the children will test their wizarding skills by creating bouncy crystal balls.

Each session will last for 50 minutes and will have a maximum of 20 children all completing the same activity, following instructions given by Lisa, the chief wizard!

Additional info: Parents must stay with their children but due to limited space, we ask that only one parent stay with each child. Please note that as soon as the workshop ends, you will be required to leave the workshop area promptly to allow for the next group to enter.
This workshop uses a mixture of chemical reactions, craft supplies and food substances to explore the topic. There is no science show, every activity is hands-on. Please note that we reserve the right to change any activity without warning or notice. Any questions please contact
