Physics Fest – get hands-on with physics

From the Institute of Physics

A day of exciting hands-on experiments and mind-boggling talks, which reveal how physics shapes our world around us, from heat, light, sound and electricity, through to mechanics, magnetism, and the structure of atoms.

Organised by the Institute of Physics (IOP) in partnership with The Forum and the Norwich Science Festival.

See what physics can do, in some hands-on fun, from super conductors to the Doctor’s TARDIS, from rockets to vacuum bazookas and everything in between.

The Institute of Physics, with support from Ensemble Automaton, Cambridge Hands On Science, and many volunteers, offers a day of spectacular entertainment and activity, with something for all ages.

Activities include:

Enter the TARDIS

Dare you step inside the Doctor’s TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space)? It’s known for being a bit unreliable, so let’s hope it doesn’t suddenly dematerialise and reappear in ancient Rome! Wait… what’s that noise? vworp vworp vworp…
