Science exploding from a conical flask

Coming soon

Looking to plan your schedule around what is coming up on #GSCAtHome? We are continuously working - at home - to build a programme of activity, so the information provided below will be updated regularly.

Please do not try to recreate demonstrations at home, unless otherwise specified.

Read on to find out what is coming up on #GSCAtHome over the next few days.

Wednesday 15 July - Huff and Puff

It's around us all the time, we breathe it in and out, and we need it to survive - but what do you know about air? How can we use the wind to generate power and make things move? Amy is here to tell us all about it!

To make your very own wind-powered vehicle, you'll need: an empty egg box or small cardboard box, cardboard, tape, a cardboard sweetie tube, scissors, pencils, paper or card, blue tac or plasticine, pens/crayons/colouring pencils, a hole punch if you have one (but it's not essential), and a hairdryer or a fan. Please make sure you have adult permission and supervision. Suitable for the whole family. View on YouTube.

Friday 17 July - Tour of Venus

Take a tour of Venus with Andrew from our Planetarium team! Andrew will be sharing some fascinating facts - for example, did you know that Venus is sometimes known as 'Earth's evil twin?' Suitable for all the family, but ideal for budding astronomers aged 7 and over.

The Weekend

Over the weekends we'll be sharing the videos from the past week to enjoy again.

All subject to change, but we'll do our best!

Educators: We also have a growing range of curriculum-linked teacher resources to view and download.

Enjoy again
