THE BONKERS BALLOON SCIENCE SHOW
at Portsmouth Guildhall Studio
Doors at 11.30am
Becky Balloonatic loves balloons and she want to show you just how much you can learn from these humble globes of latex!
The Balloon Science Show is full of thrills and spills, pops and bangs. The audience will help set up experiments and make lots of predictions on what they think might happen!
A range of topics are covered within this Balloon science extravaganza.
Atoms, Molecules and Polymers
When you make a balloon kebab? Why doesn’t it explode?
We make a balloon dog by taking advantage a few forces and quite a bit of friction.
Physical Reaction, Carbon Dioxide
What happens when you mix a popular carbonated drink with a minty sweet? Watch out for a real fizz-ical reaction!
Which balloon will travel the fastest? Ready, steady, go!
Pushing, pulling, twisting and the lesser known force, cen- tripetal
Static Electricity, Protons, Neutrons and Electrons
As Paula Abdul once said, opposites attract and Protons and Electrons are highly attracted to each other.
You will never look at a balloon the same way again.
Easy to recreate experiments can be done in a classroom or on a large stage. Music and lights are an option but not essential to this show.
