When you visit W5 make sure you catch one (or more) of the Sci-Five short demonstration shows. They're educational, entertaining, interactive but, best of all, they're great fun.
Firework fantastic - Find out a little bit about the history of fireworks, and see first-hand some of the chemical reactions that make fireworks displays possible.
Sound's interesting - What is sound, and how do we hear it? With the help of some volunteers, and a lot of noise, this show will explain!
Lights, camera, reaction! - What do a broken bone, a slice of toast and your Sunday dinner have in common? Join us as we look at the chemical reactions behind them and how we can speed them up before we see one of W5's messiest reactions and discover how an elephant cleans its teeth.
Friday 27 December - Sunday 5 January 2014

As Winter takes hold and the Snow Queen casts an icy spell over the land, we invite you to "Freeze" in a fascinating science demonstration show. Join our demonstrators as they take us on a journey of discovery into the sub-zero world of liquid nitrogen in a series of demonstrations that are so cool, they're absolutely freezing!
Showtimes: Sci-Five's shows vary from day to day and alternate with events. To make sure you don't miss them check at the Ticket Desk on arrival for a list of shows and show times.
