Saturday February 10 – Sunday February 18
The Wonderstruck Forces & Energy Show
Shows at 11am, 12pm, 1.30pm and 3.30pm. Quieter sessions on Sundays at 11am.
Have you ever wondered how boats, ships and submarines move? How do they produce the necessary forces and where does the energy come from?
To find out, take an exciting 25-minute perambulation through the world of forces & energy with your expert guide, Mr Wright.
He’ll help you explore the science goodness behind these questions. Along the way he’ll also propel an (un)lucky volunteer across the stage on the Wonderstruck Rocket Car, tinker with liquid nitrogen, and explode a rather large bowl of breakfast cereal.
Make & Take
Every day, 12.30pm to 3.30pm.
Inspired by the science show, have fun designing and making your very own paper cup rocket – see how far it will shoot into space!
Explore the wonders of the Museum in search of lab coats in our fun and fascinating trail.
What else is here?
Explore 15 galleries over five floors, jump aboard boats, climb the 100-foot Lookout Tower, go underwater in the Tidal Zone, uncover ocean adventures and survival stories and sail miniature boats on the Waterfront Boat Pool. Plus, have fun in the Skull Island Play Zone and learn about Cornish maritime history in our Cornwall galleries.
The Science of the Sea half term activities are FREE as part of the Museum’s annual admission fee. Pay once and get in free for a year.
