SCIENCE is taking over next week.
The British Science Festival is running in Newcastle and we’re offering you the chance to be part of it.
The event, which runs at the Life Science Centre, from Saturday to Thursday, September 12, is offering a host of family fun.
The centre will be celebrating the opening day of the festival with a jam-packed day of family fun activities, starting with Dr Bunhead, a man who turns science into a burning, bubbling, exploding ball of fun.
He said: “My show is all about the build-up of pressure, the effects of temperature and explaining all the bits and pieces like lava, magma and the pyroclastic flow.
“In simple terms, this is a story about squeezing a spot, but on a massive geographical scale. It’s about how the Earth vents its pressure.”
Tickets for the show, called Dr Bunhead is Volcano Head!, cost £5. It runs at 11am and 3pm.
There will also be free performances on Saturday from BBC1’s The One Show presenter, Marty Jopson and science comedienne Helen Keen.
Marty’s show, at 2pm, is entitled Standing on the Shoulders of Giants and tells the story of how Newton came up with his ideas on gravity.
Helen Keen will present Space Race!, a family show based on her popular Radio 4 series, It Is Rocket Science.
To book tickets, go to www.life.org.uk or call 243 8210.
We’ve teamed up with the centre to offer two family tickets – admitting two adults and two children or one adult and three children – to Dr Bunhead’s show on Saturday.
