“The right question changes everything. Our next cure, our next technology, our next revolutionary change… will come from a question that has never been asked. Wonder changes the world.” - Jason Latimer
Jason Latimer is the series champion of the BBC One’s The Magicians, the recipient of Siegfried & Roy’s Masters of the Impossible Award, and was bestowed with magic’s highest honour, “Grand Prix ‘Best Overall’ World Champion of Magic”. In 2018, Jason joined David Copperfield and David Blaine as one of the few recipients of the prestigious and highly coveted Golden Grolla Award from the Masters of Magic.
As a scientist, Jason is the creator of “Impossible Science” the academic platform uniting magic and science to inspire wonder in education, which has now become a popular YouTube channel with millions of views. Latimer is the Curator of Impossible Science of the iconic Fleet Science Center in San Diego, CA. Recently, Jason and Engineering.com launched the Impossible Science Student Challenge, a competition of thousands of participating schools across the US and Canada to find the classroom doing the most to inspire curiosity within Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
- The Royal Institution (Ri) provides science education and public engagement for people of all ages around the world — from the world-famous Christmas Lectures and public talks from the world's greatest thinkers in its historic lecture theatre to its YouTube channel with a programme of masterclasses for young people in mathematics, engineering and computer science. It is home to scientific giants including physicist Michael Faraday, chemist Humphry Davy, crystallographer Kathleen Lonsdale and physicist John Tyndall, etc. Discoveries made here have shaped the modern world. More importantly, these scientists understood the importance of sharing their work with the wider public.
- The Science Museum Group is the world’s most significant museum group for science, technology and engineering, and attracts more than 5 million visitors annually. The Group comprises: Science Museum, London; National Railway Museum, York; Science and Industry Museum, Manchester; National Science and Media Museum, Bradford and Locomotion in Shildon.
Amaze your friends with this collection of cool science experiments powered by the air you breathe. Let's create a life-size tornado at home or classroom after learning how to capture a swirling vortex in a bottle! We will also learn how weather systems develop and how air in the atmosphere moves through convection currents, uncover the secret to inflating an 8-inch bag using a single breath of air, and try to launch a piece of potato using compressed air. Fire up your engineering brain to turn an ordinary leaf blower into a machine that makes toilet paper fly. This is an action-packed programme that’s guaranteed to get your creative ideas flowing.
