The Science of Burps & Farts
How much gas do you really produce? Are beans actually the ‘musical fruit’? Just how loud can a burp get?
Join us to answer these questions and delight in this equally embarrassing and funny topic!
- The Art of the Fart live show: Join our intrepid explorers as they trumpet the importance of belches, burps and farts. This science show is no joke as we investigate the chemistry and biology of these natural processes with explosions, smells and lots of audience interaction. Shows are free with General Admission and running at 11:00, 12 noon, 13:00 and 14:00 on both Saturday and Sunday.
- Invention Studio: On top of our usual tinkering experience, we'll be challenging your creativity with the construction and racing of balloon-powered cars!
