Switch on to Science
Science is much more than explosions and weird experiments. It is the knowledge we use to make all the wonderful things we rely on every day.
Then enjoy the Laser show by guest presenter Ruben Meerman, ‘The Surfing Scientist’, who will take us on a spectacular science educational journey. Celebrate National Science Week's theme 'Glass more than meets the eye' and the United Nations International Year of Glass with a light-bending presentation about the wonders of optics and photonics. Ruben uses laser beams, thermal imaging cameras, spinning mirrors and a fish tank to demonstrate the laws of refraction, reflection, transmission and absorption. You'll learn what light is 'made of' and how it is used for everything from tattoo removal, scanning barcodes, cutting steel and measuring how fast our moon is drifting off into space.
