All the fun of the fair, plus all the buzz of science!

It looks like a funfair; it IS a funfair, but each activity has a little science snuck in. The Incredible Machine, Splat the Rat, Guess the Weight of the Cake, Gull Poo Shooting Gallery, Amazing Shrinking Box, Upside-down Goggles, Marble Runs, Tangrams…  Created by BBC Rough Science’s Jonathan Hare and science showman Richard Robinson, director of Brighton Science Festival.
