Shows at the Big Bang Pembrokeshire:

Science Made Simple – It’s only water… or is it?

This exciting science made simple show explores all the amazing properties of water. From absorbing water effectively, to dissolving chemicals in it, you can squash, freeze and heat water to do all sorts of things.

Be prepared to get wet, in this interactive show which may see students (and teachers) get a little wetter than they bargained for!

Science Made Simple – Music to your Ears

How do we make sounds, record sounds and see sounds? Music to your Ears is a classic science made simple show all about the science of sound, with lots of surprises and excitement through highly visual demonstrations and audience interaction.

Our show informs your audience about basics of sound, how our ears hear, and the latest in music technology.

Witness the Theramin, the ultimate ‘hands-free’ instrument, and see music being made with a blowtorch! Discover what sound is, and see what it actually looks like. Find out about the important sound sensors in our ears, and how they can be damaged by loud music. Uncover the mysteries of how CD players and MP3 players work, and even have some fun with synthesized voices!
