Join in with Badminton Science Outreach

Badminton School's Science Outreach team provides positive role models of young women engaged in the physical sciences at events around the UK, with demonstrations being delivered by students from Year 10 to Year 13. Join us for two sets of demonstrations - Physics in the Freezer and Can an Electron Push my Car?

Physics in the Freezer: Join us to visit extremes of temperature and see just how cool Physics can get!  We’ll be boiling a frozen kettle, shattering flowers and even levitating a superconductor!

Can an Electron Push My Car?  As the popularity of electric cars grows, we will show you how renewable energy can be harnessed for transport, help you discover how motors and batteries work, and explore other related technologies such as heat pumps that will change everyone’s lives for the better.
