Join us to see how art and science can cross over in a series of hands on creative activities inspired by the artist Joseph Wright of Derby's paintings of volcanoes, fireworks and scientific discovery in the eighteenth century, including:
'Make your own clay volcano'
'Rock Strata Test Tubes'
'Egg-head inventors' and
'paint bomb explosions' and
'volcano art'.

Follow our clues on our Easter Museum trail and claim a chocolate reward in return for your explorations. Enjoy imaginative tales of discovery from our storyteller Michael Loader. Be amazed by 'The Science Friction Show' provided by Fizz Pop Science. With bouncy castles, face painting and a seismic volcanic eruption thrown in for good measure, we promise a cracking good time and a giant egg roll!

Science Friction Show

'We will go on a journey of science investigation as we learn about friction. We start with our terrible Dalek impression as we perform a small experiment to see if anyone is stronger than air. We then find out about how when we visited an alien planet all the children had MASSIVE HANDS! This was great for waving, but made things difficult when I asked them to perform a simple task?. Next up was the planet that had children with antennae, they had to move really slowly for some reason?. Finally I will show you how one day after clearing up after breakfast I realised a way to travel around on a planet where I forgot my car!?. A Science Friction Extravaganza, and a journey that will show us a lot about Friction and Grip!. Science at its best, enjoyable for Parents, and children.'Fizz Pop Science are an award winning company that deliver Science Shows, Science Workshops and Science Parties in Bath, Bristol and most of the South West.
