Mad Science - Mission To Mars Show

Britain has had its first astronaut aboard the International Space Station and it’s time for the children of the North West to give chase!

In this show the children will discover what it takes to blast off into space, survive in zero gravity and make it back home safely. Discussing aerodynamics, the effect of gravity and the four forces of flight, you may very well have Britain’s next astronaut beginning their training at Rheged.

In true Mad Science style, we end our amazing display of experiments with an incredible (controlled!) rocket fuel explosion!
