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  Sun, Sea and Science

It’s Summer – the sun is shining, the days are long, schools out and we can go play at the beach! Take a science-y look at a trip to the sunny seaside and investigate why we use sunscreen, how salty the sea is, and how to make the best sandcastle!

Make something a little different with our activities today!

12.30pm  Recycled Car Toy

Let us show you how to transform a pile of rubbish into a fun toy car, and find out a bit about recycling along the way.
