Three of the greatest scientists in history are popping into the Yorkshire Museum this Saturday (March 23) to conduct a few mind boggling experiments.
Isaac Newton, Marie Curie and Albert Einstein will be at the museum as part of National Science and Engineering Week.
Between 10am and 4pm visitors will be able to take part in hands-on activities led by the scientists, such as building mini rockets – and making starlight!
“This is a great chance to come face-to-face with some of history’s greatest scientists. They will be at the museum to talk about their theories and ideas and to carry out experiments to prove their points,” said Amy Parkinson, learning manager at the museum.
With Isaac Newton visitors can make their own mini rocket. They will discover how Newton’s third law of motion makes it fly and another invisible force brings the rocket back to earth.
Marie Curie will be using light rays to make pictures using a special light sensitive material while Albert Einstein will be looking to the heavens for inspiration, helping visitors to make their own starlight.
The event is free with admission to the Yorkshire Museum, which is free to York Card Holders.
