Witness air-raising experiments as we discover air equilibrium, lift, gravity, thrust and drag and how they affect flight! Who can make the best flying machine? Who can be the flying ping pong champion and can we make toilet roll fly? Discover all of this and more on this air-mazing day of fun!


Polar Opposites

Things are about to heat up in the world of magnets! From North Pole to South Pole, discover the magnetic field that surrounds our earth. Use magnets to make your very own levitating doughnuts to take home and see the effects of a neodymium magnet! Then, things really heat up as we learn all about freezing and boiling points through the making of handmade thermometers!


Spark your Imagination
