Brighton Science Festival

Zap, Crackle & Pop!

Friday 19 February 2016

Join Dr Marty Jopson, the BBC One Show’s resident scientist as he takes a sparky journey through the story of how we tamed electricity, the most spectacular of nature’s forces.

Do you know the difference between current and voltage? Or your AC from your DC? With the aid of the audience, Marty will explain. From the Ancient Greeks, through Faraday’s genius, to the craziest of the mad scientists, Nikola Tesla, this show aims to put the awesome back into electricity.

A show chock full of demonstrations, explosions, citrus fruit and a plucked chicken. Expect a hair raising and electrifying performance.

£10 / £8. Ages 7+
