Becky Kitter – Balloon Science

Balloons are fun, right? Well, if balloons are fun then that must mean that science is fun too!

Balloonatic Becky Kitter loves balloons and she wants to show you just how much you can learn from them. The Bonkers Balloon Science Show is full of thrills and spills, pops and bangs and is highly interactive, working equally well with small and large audiences and school groups.

A range of topics are covered within the 45min Balloon science extravaganza making it suitable for a wide range of ages from 5 years to 11 years old.

Becky (Rebecca) Kitter is a professional actress and international balloon artist. Her experience includes many years working with children in the theatre, at parties and she can even be seen on CBeebies and Cartoonito. Most recently Becky performed in Father Christmas’s Christmas List at Proteus Creation Space, a fully interactive festive production for the under 5’s and their families.

Atoms, Molecules and Polymers

When you make a balloon kebab? Why doesn’t it explode?

Friction
We make a balloon dog by taking advantage a few forces and quite a bit of friction.

Physical Reaction, Carbon Dioxide
What happens when you mix a popular carbonated drink with a minty sweet? Watch out for a reall fizz-ical reaction!

Thrust
Which balloon will travel the fastest? Ready, stead, go!

Forces
Pushing, pulling, twisting and the lesser known force, centripetal

Static Electricity, Protons, Neutrons and Electrons
As Paula Abdul once said, opposites attract and Protons and Electrons are highly attracted to each other.

"Becky managed to explain some relatively difficult concepts - including particle theory and centripetal forces - with the use of balloons. The kids loved the session and, three months later, we are doing a unit on forces and all the students remembered every part of the science they learnt with Becky. I sincerely hope that Becky is able to come back as she has made a lasting impression”

"Wanted to say a huge thank you from everyone in year one, we all enjoyed your amazing and very entertaining show. We still have the balloon with the 'magic' moon rock inside, the children all give it a gentle tap every time they enter the classroom! They were able to retell every part of the show when they returned to their classrooms and even used scientific terms in their descriptions. You would be very welcome if you ever wanted to return and show off your fantastic talents!"
