Mad Science has deemed it time for a new rack of recruits to venture into space exploration. Rheged Centre invites all potential astronauts, who are up to the mission, to join them in May half term.
In this show, children will discover what it takes to blast off into space and survive in zero gravity. The Mad Scientists discuss aerodynamics, the effect of gravity and the four forces of flight. You may very well have Britain’s next astronaut beginning their training at Rheged. The show will inspire, amaze and spark interest in space and physics in a fun, experimental way. In true Mad Science style, their amazing display ends with an incredible rocket fuel explosion! Head down to Rheged Centre to get in on the action and experience what it is like to be an astronaut.
Tickets are £7 per person. Each show will last 45 minutes. The show is aimed at those aged 4 – 11 years old, please note that parental supervision is required.
