Fire Safety and Fire Science Programme

We welcome visits from schools, home education groups and colleges, and provide a programme that covers Key Stage 3 topics including:

– Scientific inquiry

– Materials and their properties

– Changing materials

– Chemical reactions

– Conservation of energy

– How energy is transferred; conduction, convection and radiation

Using a combination of presentations, live fire demonstrations and hands-on experiments, including use of a fire extinguisher, students will develop a knowledge and understanding of the physics and chemistry of fire, how it is applied to fire safety and subsequently the design of buildings.
