FIZZ, POP, BANG! at Cool Planet @ Powerscourt, Enniskerry

22nd August 2019 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Cool Planet Experience


2 hour Summer Labs @ Cool Planet Experience every Thurs – Sat in July & August

The 2hr lab includes 1 hr of stomp-rocket creations & 1 hr of sustainable slime making!

2hrs | €11am | €20pp |Age 6-12



Kids will learn about the link between climate and energy by designing their own stomp-rocket to take home. They will discover how stomp-rockets work by;

  • converting stored energy (trapped-air in a 2 litre bottle)
  • creating moving energy (the rocket thrust)
  • applying pressure (stomping on the bottle that is connected to the rocket!!!)

to see how clever energy storage and conversion can deliver clean and free power, capable of fuelling the world.


Sustainable Slime

Kids will venture into the strange and squishy world of slime and environmental science – slime, goo, jelly balls and seaweed! They will play, pop and stretch their self-made slime to discover how we can use these unusual materials as an alternative to plastic (think edible water bottles and sustainable packaging)!

All materials are supplied.

* A minimum of 5 children in the group is required to run the Summer labs. If we do not reach this group size for your preferred date we will notify you 24hrs in advance with the possibility of a) a change of date, or b) a full refund.
