Pocket Science Festival - Brighton
The Pocket Science Funfair - all the fun of the fair, plus all the buzz of science.
On its latest outing the funfair with a twist celebrates the twentieth anniversary of Harry Potter by dealing out a little magic of our own. And why stop at Potter? We have special effects from The Lord of the Rings and from Star Wars.
Well be showing you how to do magic with electrostatics the magic that holds everything together. You do it with a wand not the clunky, potteresque type, but powerful enough to channel electrostatic forces into some pretty neat tricks. You can pop into your local café to daze and dazzle the baristas, using no more than the straws, cups and napkins on the counter.
You can manipulate another force of nature gravity to help your Quiddich target practice.
You can shrink down to the size of a hobbit. or further, to the size of a goblin.
You can hear from a Star Wars actor how they made the sound of the storm-troopers guns.
Marble runs, spaghetti towers, upside-down goggles, illusions: a full fairgrounds worth of fun!
