Fun In Brighton!

Last Friday we had a great day in Brighton providing a series of hands-on activities for families who visited us at the Synergy Centre. And nearly 300 did so.
Everyone had chance to make and investigate: a jumping bean, a hoopster, a chatterbox (see photo), a rain stick and a multi-coloured candle. There was so much to see and do. One family was amazed to learn that not all scientists wear white coats and goggles!
Alongside that there was the Family Challenge: how tall a structure can you make out of thirty straws that will hold a marble? The winners managed 2.07m.
And if all that hadn't been enough, Sarah was providing sessions of our "Street Science" show throughout the day.
