We have SO many things for you to come and experiment with!

  • Watch a smoking, rumbling volcano and learn about how it erupts.
  • Discover how the Cathedral stands up and try building your own archway.
  • Experiment with food, body parts and chemistry.
  • Help launch a rocket.
  • Talk through a giant hosepipe telephone.
  • Meet a dalek and a giant tortoise.
  • Follow a trail to discover the origins of the bread we eat every day.
  • Discover how the Cathedral organ makes its sound and create some new sounds yourself on an organ made of bottles.
  • Meet your gut and explore the role trillions of bacteria play in benefitting our health.

Plus, watch Bishop Graham James walk on custard... and then find out how he did it!

The day finishes with a Family Service in Celebration of Science at 3.30pm.

You are very welcome to join us for all or part of the day... just come along and enjoy the fun - it's free!
