Plug in and power up! It’s time to blast into 2002 for an electrifying new science show. Over the past 20 years the way we use electricity has radically changed as our use of personal technology has evolved. We rely so heavily on electricity to power our lives. But what is it and how is it generated? Let’s find out together in Sparks, a brand new live science show.
In 2022 we’re celebrating 20 years of wow moments at the Science Centre. Take a trip down memory lane with us and enjoy some of our best show themes and demos from the past 20 years – all with a retro 2002 twist. Next stop – electricity.
The Science Theatre is accessible so everyone can enjoy all the fun. Sometimes there will be loud noises, but we’ll tell you about them before the show starts. If you want to wear ear defenders, you can borrow them from us before the show starts. If you feel nervous in a show, you can stay near the back and leave quickly if you need to.
Sensitive to loud noises? There’s a not-so-noisy show just for you at 3.30pm.
***On Saturday, 30th July and Saturday, 27th August, a British Sign Language interpreter will be signing during the 11:30am and 2:30pm shows. Talk to our Accessibility team so we can reserve a seat for you near the front.***
