WORKSHOPS AND SHOWS FOR SCHOOLS
Ever wondered what it’s like to be an astronaut? How do you get into space, and what’s it like to live and work there?
Learn how the physics of Isaac Newton’s laws got us into space and ride on a hover board. Experience some of the dangers of going into space with our vacuum chamber and our blowtorch – and find out how we used science to overcome these challenges.
Forgotten your sea legs? Don’t worry you’ll be rolling up your sleeves and creating a land yacht while learning about materials and forces.
This popular workshop gets pupils to build, test and modify their own land yacht. Design your own sail from everyday materials and ride like the wind in an exciting finale where pupils can compete in a great…
Along the way, you’ll learn about materials, forces and design.
Learn about forces and energy as your pupils work together to build a joined up chain of crazy contraptions.
This high-octane interactive engineering workshop gets teams working together to create one big, wacky chain reaction. Using pulleys and levers, bits of string and ping pong balls, this is a chance to really get your hands on science to learn about energy and forces at the same time as getting to grips with teamwork – with lots of fun along the way.
