Today’s shows:

11.00am  Gums to Bum

Take a tour through the digestive system; observe what happens from the moment food enters the mouth, all the way until it reaches the toilet! See a series of revolting demos and even volunteer to help the process

2.30pm Safe in Space

How amazing to be an astronaut! Going into space would be pretty cool, but have you ever considered how astronauts stay safe in space? Have you wondered why is life in space different to our life on earth? Maybe you have thought about why astronauts wear space suits and what are they made of? Perhaps you have thought about why is coming back to earth so difficult?

Our ‘Safe in Space’ show explores all these questions and provides you the answers!

Make something a little different to take home with you!

12.30pm Predator Plants

Make and take a unique rainbow-coloured spinning top. Watch something magical happen before our eyes when we give it a spin.
