Learn how some spooky pictures can be moved with the help of static electricity. Scientists from the Royal Institution of Great Britain will show you how to conduct your own experiment and explore for yourself the wonderful science of static electricity, which makes things move without touching them and behave in ways they’re not supposed to!
Where there is colour, there is light! From red roses to green leaves to a glowing firefly, the wonderful colours we see in our beautiful world are all the result of the energy conversion involving unbelievably tiny particles – electrons. This show looks at the science of colour and light through a series of stimulating laboratory demonstrations. Come and explore the secrets behind our colourful world!
After the show, play the mini-game we've prepared for you to experience a chemistry laboratory in 360° virtual tour. Collect all the tools & equipment needed for Dr Au-Yeung to conduct the science experiment!
