Joining Forces

Shows & Workshops
Duration: 60 min
Suitable For: KS2

Joining Forces is a show designed for up to 60 children (two classes).

Why have we brought a skateboard to your school? How does a person survive a fall from an aeroplane? Can trains be made to float? What stops us from sliding around?

Isaac Newton is famous for many things, but his Laws of Motion are possibly the most important, explaining how we get things moving. We investigate these laws and look at the various forces we encounter every day. Gravity, magnetism, friction and air resistance are all demonstrated to help push children in to thinking and talking about the forces that affect us every day.
