Meet Irene to find out why we need to treat water to make it safe to drink and Denny to build your own water filter system. Meet Ameya and experiment with making blood and constructing a test strip to check your health. Meet Antonio to find out about reducing noise and why it makes us feel better or Uwe who is interested in the strength of both corals and bones to reduce the chances of them breaking. Meet Farnaz who removes chemicals from plants and algae – you can use ones you remove for painting but other chemicals can be used as medicines or vitamins.
Meet Emilyann and her robots who help people stay healthy – play a game of Simon Says and learn how to code. Meet Sara to find out about robots in space – use our app to design your own space Rover and experiment with light. Meet Antonio to see what can be done to make drones less noisy and meet Paul to figure out how robots, drones and computers “see” and improve your juggling skills.
Explore underneath the Earth, going underground with Moh to think about what is good to build on and under the sea with Uwe to test coral strength. Meet Faisal to learn about materials for camouflage and invisibility as well as testing surfaces for how rough or smooth they are. Meet Christiaan to explore inside computers and mobile phones and how we manufacture the tiny tiny parts that make them work.
Meet Allison to build your own wind turbine and learn more about spinning and the effect of the wind with circus skills. Meet Salma to find out how solar energy helps people around the world and make your own solar oven. Meet Fionah and the Happy Green House to think about how we can better design structures to cope with climate change. Meet Uwe for a series of drama activities to find out about corals and how they are impacted by climate change. And with our engineer Farnaz see how we can use plants and algae for making different colours and for energy.
Meet Adah and Jinglang to find out all about orbits in space then create your orbits with hula hoops. Adah also has a build a rocket challenge and Jinglang helps tidy up in space. Meet Sara and craft your own space Rover as well as dance your way through astronaut training. Meet Jinglang to find out about satellite orbits, while learning to hula hoop, and play the Space Junk Tidy Up game.
Meet Sarah and Wonderful Amy to find out about the history of flight – learn a new song and build your own plane. From aeroplanes to satellites in space meet Adah to build rockets and Jinglang to remove space junk, along with some orbit related hula hooping. Finally, learn about drones and how Antonio is making them less noisy. You’ll need to listen carefully to our songs and you’ll get to build your own noisemaker.
