NEW! Colours we can’t see show
60 minutes duration.
This is an incredible new show which uses a Thermal Imaging, InfraRed Camera to explore the world of light. All around us are electromagnetic waves, but the colours we can see are only a tiny fraction of them. This exciting new show will use technology to enable the audience to “see” extra colours beyond both ends of the visible spectrum. At one end is Ultra-Violet (UV) and the other end is Infra-Red (IR). You’ll be absolutely amazed at the things you will be able to “see” that are normally invisible to us (although some animals can see and use UV or IR!) and this technology is becoming increasingly important in the modern world. It is guaranteed to give you a whole new way of looking at the world around us.
New! Making Waves: Powering the future of our planet!
Making Waves: Powering the future of our planet is a show that will reinforce how precious our planet is. Celebrating the National Science Week theme 2020 of “Deep Blue”, it’s a show that will explore the power of the ocean to the wind on the land, the energy we harness and use is vitally important for our planet’s future. The is show will teach you about energy use and conservation with a range of scientific demonstrations that will wow you – from on-stage lightning to air pressure and cool waves – this is a show to visually show you how we make waves to power the future of our planet.

Years 2 – 9
60 minute show
New to 2015 and to help celebrate the International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies is our new LIGHT show!
What is light? Why do we see colours? How is a rainbow made? Become a scientist and investigate the science of light in this interactive show. Featuring glowing chemical reactions, lasers, and iridescent bubbles, we’ll make the physics of light fun and easily understandable. Explore how fireworks are made and learn how a bee sees a flower… and you might even learn the secret to invisibility!
