Over the Easter weekend come over to the W5 in Belfast to enjoy a fantastic fun-filled show as they take everyday science and GO LARGE! At W5, they love science and every day their team delivers shows with different experiments and demonstrations! This easter, they have made them BIGGER.
Join the W5 team for 'Amazing Experiments'
where their Demonstrators will look at simple scientific concepts and find out what happens when scaling them up. What do four leaf blowers, an oil drum and liquid nitrogen have in common? Come and find out and be entertained by the unexpected as you learn about the science all around us in a show where bigger really is better!
