Heavy science textbooks and lab sessions – for some of us, this is all we can remember of our secondary school science classes. But science doesn’t have to be all work and no play. 

More than just demos and lectures, one-north Festival 2019 is back this year with magical science performances, interactive talks, and inflatable science displays that promise an exhilarating day out for the whole family. Here are some of the things you can look forward to from 13th – 14th September 2019

Be dazzled by science-based magic tricks

Hosted by world-renowned magician Jason Latimer, the ‘Wonder Changes the World’ Magical Science Show features dramatic shows of science-based magic. You’ll get to witness some pretty mind-blowing acts too, since Latimer’s known for bending lasers and shaping water with his hands.

Check out some of his magic acts here:

Watch school science experiments come to life

Seeing chemicals bubble away in test tubes was pretty fun back in school, but you can see them taken to the next level at The Greatest Science Experiments…. Ever

The Royal Institution (RI) will be presenting an array of science experiments that’ll involve fizzling bottles and extravagant flaming displays. You can even volunteer to go on stage to try your hand at these experiments. There’s no way you’ll be calling science boring after seeing these with your own eyes.

For a taste of what you’ll see, take a look at this:

Take an educational trip through an inflatable digestive system

An organ-inspired inflatable isn’t something you’d see every day, but you’ll come across just that over here. These bouncy displays come in the shape of human lungs and the digestive system, which your kiddos will have a ball of time crawling through.

And it’s not just all about fun and games. These inflatables come packed with activity tables and information displays, so children can have an educational experience with their parents.

Learn about new scientific breakthroughs at the talks

Those of you with rusty science knowledge can attend a talk or two, to find out more about the latest scientific breakthroughs from industry experts themselves. 

Learn how green technology is revolutionising industries like F&B and medicine, at talks that discuss cruelty-free seafood grown from cells, and how human genes can be “edited” to cure genetic diseases. So aside from that secondary school #throwback, you’ll also be able to learn a new thing or two.

There are 29 immersive talks that will take place at the festival, and all of them are free-of-charge – just register here!
