Jam-packed with exploration, discovery and experiments for all the family we celebrate the wondrous world of Physics.
Thanks to our major supporter, the Institute of Physics, and our host partner Heybrook Primary School, and in conjunction with United Nations World Science day - come and join Rochdale Science Initiative C.I.C on Sunday 10th November 2019 for an extra-special family fun day.

Around 1.15pm, Fun Science will take to stage to perform a shocking, electrifying and hair-raising full scale theatrical science show with lots of audience participation.

Throughout the day, Immersive Experiences will provide the opportunity to explore our universe inside a 360° VR planetarium.
Flashbang Science is a fantastic bright mobile lab which will pull up right outside Heybrook Primary School playground.

There will also be intermittent outdoor science busking led by FlashBang Science.
