Gastronaut Presents: The Science of Sweets!

Friday 26 February, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Suitability: 6 Yrs +

Free - Donations Welcome

A spectacular, Wonka-esque edible science show from BBC Gastronaut Stefan Gates

Join Stefan Gates and his long-suffering daughter, Poppy, for edible chemical reactions, vortex cannons, explosions, glowing drinks and tales of hidden insects in our marshmallows. 

The show is packed with chemistry, biology and physics and there are loads of demos you can try at home... plus a few you really can’t!
