Today’s shows:

11.00am  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.

2.30pm 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 along the way.

Make something a little different to take home with you!

12.30pm Paper Lizards

What’s underneath our planet’s surface? Make your own layered model of the Earth and uncover the truth about its structure. Looking at the world’s inner and outer core, mantle, and crust, we explain the science behind the mysterious structural content responsible for the world’s magnetic poles, earthquakes, and volcanoes.
