We will be discovering different scientific concepts through our shows and activities each day in a fun and interactive way. There will be plenty of time to explore our hands-on exhibits too, and our Science Communicators will be on hand to answer any questions you have.
Today we are celebrating the Ramsey Charity Bike Ride Out. Riders will be arriving at Ramsey Rural Museum at 11am so come along, check out these incredible bikes and then join in with our show all about speedy machines, 'Built for Speed.
Join in with our show
11am Built for Speed
How do we build machines? What makes them work and what makes them go fast? Why are some machines faster than others and how do we build machines for speed?
Today, we will be looking at how machines work and why some are faster than others. You can build your very own machine out of recycled materials.
Have a go at our take-home activity
2pm Pop Rockets
Rockets aren't all about fire and explosions, we can also use chemical reactions to make things take off. Explore the use of a chemical reaction to fuel a "rocket" made out of a film cannister.
Children must be accompanied by a parent or carer at all times. Most suitable for children aged 7-11 years. Younger siblings will be able to join in with some adult support.
