Physics Magic

Physics Magic is a series of live demonstrations that will surprise and entertain while explaining the basic scientific concepts of physics and maths in a fun and interactive way.

Topics covered include gravity, pressure and force, with each demonstration aiming to demystify science with engaging experiments.

Children are encouraged to interact throughout the demos, and to guess what the outcome of each 'trick' will be, showing how useful and accessible science is for everyone.

Activities are targeted towards children 7+

Please note this experience can be run in either L2 or L1 COVID 19 alert levels. Due to physical distancing rules, no audience participation will be allowed at Level 2.
