This family science workshop focuses on all things bright and sweet - and is completely E number free. 

The experiments will include a mixture of wow factor chemical demonstrations including colour changing liquids and lemonade rain.

No-one will leave empty handed as we will be making our own (additive free) sherbet to take home. 

We'll also find out what puts the fizz into our fizzy drinks and how to make candy floss.   

We will also be looking at the science of colours when we make rainbows appear before our very eyes.
