This year, the mission to thrill and inspire future scientists and engineers reaches new levels as TV science presenter Greg Foot (BBC, Channel4, Discovery Channel) unleashes his brand new show all about the science of explosions that have shaped our modern world. The show, Kaboom! looks at topics from the chemistry of gunpowder to the anatomy of highly explosive detonations, the dissection of an internal combustion engine to the power of the hybrid rockets that have taken us into space. Visitors can expect loud jet engines set off live on stage, cannon balls launched above their heads, towering showers of sparks and coloured flame balls.
For those with curious minds and stomachs, TV presenter Stefan Gates will be taking people on an explosive journey into the science of their lunch. There will Â be rockets, edible insects, extreme flatulence, loud explosions and jaw-droppingly visual chemistry.
