Magical SubstanceWhat substance can be fluffy, squishy and stretchy all at the same time, and is loads of fun to play with? The answer – slime! Slime is a strange substance: left to its own devices, it oozes like a liquid; give it a push or a pull, and it's stiff like a solid. During Croucher Science Week, the Science Museum Group from the UK is running a fascinating drop-in activity to introduce the science behind slime at the Hong Kong Science Museum. We will look at materials around us and their states of matter, how they change and transform, and make use of these states of matter to create your very own slippery slime to take home at the end of the day.
Out of This WorldFrom exciting rocket launches, to searches for alien life, to exploring the solar system, the Science Museum Group will deliver an action-packed immersion in the journey of an astronaut. Discover what it takes to be an astronaut, from the weird food and amazing space suits to the water that they use over and over. Learn how to launch a rocket, how to make space food and where the best places might be to search for alien life. Buckle up for the powerful rocket launch through the freezing atmosphere into the vastness of space, this show brings you up close to the final frontier of space travel.
Slime TimeSlime is a strange substance. Left by itself, it oozes like a liquid, but give it a push or a pull and it's stiff like a solid. Brought to you by the Science Museum Group, this workshop explores how materials change and transform, as participants make their very own slippery slime to take home.
