Water Show

Discover a world of chemistry through the everyday life of water

A brief summary

The water cycle, weather, solids, liquids and gases are brought to life within the magical atmosphere of Explorer Dome. This new show has been developed with the support of the Royal Society of Chemistry and is the first of its kind, combining bespoke fulldome digital animation with our signature hands-on approach. For more detail of the development of this project, read our Blog!

Our water show is specifically designed for KS2 children.
More details of timing, capacity and curriculum links are below.

Scientific Enquiry

We want to stimulate curiosity in science for all, regardless of age, gender, background or ability. Our science shows:

  • Allow for questions to share interests and explore ideas
  • Treat every child as unique, supporting personal development
  • Promote observation, prediction and exploration
  • Encourage imagination, creative and critical thinking
  • Support and enhance the Curriculum across subject areas

Water Show


Key Stage Two - ages 7-11

Supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry, this show explores the most important chemical for life on Earth - H2O. What is the water molecule and the difference between ice, liquid water and water vapour? The water cycle explained inside clouds and caves - condensation, freezing, evaporation, precipitation, disolving and exploding! Find out more about our most precious natural resource.

  • Duration: ~50 mins
  • Curriculum Links
  • Capacity: ~30 children + adults


Key Stage Three - ages 11-14

Supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry, this show follows the epic journey of H2O from its cosmic origins in deep space and existence on Earth, its continuous changing state, explosive potential and the fundamental importance of water for life on our planet ... and perhaps beyond.

  • Duration: ~50 mins
  • Curriculum Links
  • Capacity: ~30 children + adults
