Physics show

In the middle of winter, where else would you rather be than at a lecture theatre where we work with cool substances (literally!)? So cool, in fact, that they will be even colder than outside! Join us for an exciting and interactive science show exploring the physics surrounding us. We will experiment with liquid nitrogen, lasers and balloons. From simple household items to innovative technology, we will uncover the science behind every-day phenomena. Don't miss this entertaining and thrilling exploration of the laws of physics!

Presented by the University of Otago Department of Physics. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
