Activities running today are:

Christmas DNA paper chains

DNA forms the building blocks for life by pairing bases in a double helix structure. Use strips of coloured paper for the bases and pair them to make festive themed DNA sequences to decorate the centre for Christmas! Do you want to recreate the DNA sequence from a turkey, a cranberry – or a brussels sprout?

Melting Snowmen

Snowflakes that fall through moist air that is slightly warmer than 0 °C will melt around the edges and stick together to produce big flakes. This type of ‘wet’ snow is great for building snowmen. We don’t have snow in the PopUpScience Centre, but using a bit of chemistry we can make fake snow to make snowmen that you can take home to magically melt!

Please note that the Centre on Clifton Road is closed over this period.
