A Very Edgy Christmas: Old-school Chemistry Kits

December 18, 2016, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Old-School Chemistry Kits

A Very Edgy Christmas

Historically, we haven’t themed our workshops to suit the season. But, we’ve changed our mind this year and thought we’d experiment and see what you – our community – thinks…

Old-school Chemistry Kits (for kids)

Work with The Edge’s resident scientist Dr. Peter Musk to make a kids science kit to put under the Christmas tree. Work with common household products and traditional science glassware and learn how to safely engage with children to inspire curiosity and instil a love of science.

The workshop includes all the ingredients, glassware and experiment booklet boxed for wrapping – we’ll teach you the experiments and send you home with the kit to play!


  • No skills required
  • Participants must be over 16 years of age
  • Enclosed, flat footwear must be worn

To find out more about what’s on offer at The Edge, read up on our Fabrication Lab and community makerspace.
