Flash! Bang! Wallop!

What makes a fire? How can explosions help us in our everyday lives? What makes things go bang? With the help of fire tornadoes and real explosions, we’ll explain all this and more.

The Rocket Show!

Hundreds of rockets have been launched into space from Earth. In this show we’ll launch our own, examine rocket fuel and learn how astronauts get into space and back safely, all with the help of Newton’s Laws of Motion.

This show is suitable for children aged 9–14.
