Drop-in Activities: Down To Earth

Anturus and the Australian Museum are running a series of fascinating drop-in activities during Croucher Science Week! Anturus will show what renewable energy is doing for the world, and will create wind catchers to reveal how much energy there is in wind. The Australian Museum’s science team will demonstrate surprising reactions of matter in various states and density, and will help us visualise what happens in the lead-up to a volcanic eruption!

Street Science Shows: Hands on (Hands off!)

In this show, the Ministry of Science team will roll out some of their favourite demonstrations with plenty of opportunity for the audience to get hands-on, both during the show and later at home. The finish, however, is definitely hands-off for the audiences as the fun ramps up to the most explosive experiment of all.

Science Circus with Rhys Thomas

Location

Lower Piazza, Hong Kong Science Museum

Street Science Shows: The Gollyology Show

Using his super powers of creativity, education and practice, Rhys Thomas takes on circus challenges that reveal the secrets of the universe. What happens when a spinning ball turns into a spinning Saturn? Can maths be used to create juggling tricks? Will the audience’s ideas about balance help save Rhys’ face from a beaker of acid? And is there an equation powerful enough to save his toes from the Ladder of Swords?

Science Circus

The Science Circus is a goofy battle between playfulness and the laws of physics. Audiences will giggle as juggler Rhys Thomas tries to outwit gravity with a bowling ball and a feather, marvel as he turns a sphere into a gyroscope that keeps stable on a kid’s finger, and laugh as he tries to balance on a tall unicycle, does cowboy rope tricks and daringly risks his mum’s plates in a throw-down with inertia! It’s a battle everyone wins as they come away understanding the physics of fun.
