Science of the Sky

Hands-on session for aspiring scientists, where you'll discover lots of exciting things about flight!

What do the giant peach, the glass elevator and the Roly-Poly Bird all have in common? They all took to the skies in Roald Dahl's books. In this session you'll try out experiments that lift, float, fly and fizz upwards based on some of these best-loved stories.
