Science Show: Science of Sport

This event has finished. 19 May 2013, 3.30pm

From the moment you leave the starting blocks, your sporting ability can be affected by science.

How do people balance, and what makes them fall over? What happens when a ball bounces, and why do balls have different surfaces? How is friction useful in sport and how do we use science to protect us from injury?

Watch plastic cups loop-the loop, and try to spot the trick in the game of crazy cricket. Dare you sit on a seat of nails?

This exciting and interactive show uses lots of audience involvement to make you think about sport as you never have before. Be prepared to limber up and join in for this show with lots of audience interaction.
