Techniquest, Wales - 19th February 2011

By: miapearl

We've come to Techniquest, a hands on science centre associated with Glyndwr University in Wrexham
There were all sorts of illusions.
The pattern has changed now the disc is spinning.
It made my eyes go funny.
A Pythagoras puzzle.
The biggest square complete.
Now the smaller two.
Vocal chords, the shape varies to vary the sound.
Sound waves.
A parabolic mirror
Outside, we caught the end of a rocket-launching session.
I think they said the pressure they were going up to was 50psi for these demonstations. 
Back inside, there's a weather station. It wasn't a very windy day.
This is an orb, with a layer of fluid between two domes. Shiny crystals in the fluid show the lines of flow.

Magna Science Adventure Centre, England - 27th February 2011

By: miapearl

On our way home, we went via Magna, an industrial science museum set in an old steelworks near Rotherham/Sheffield.
There were 4 zones. The first zone we went to was Water.
A whirlpool exhibit.
Next, we went to Fire.
This is a fire tornado.
Lighting isn't that good for photographs with the fire tornado.
Next stop was Air. This is a musical exhibit with tubes and things.
The exhibit can be quite noisy.
We then went for a game of Air hockey.
The air blows through holes in the table and lifts up the puck ever so slightly.
This is a frequency exhibit with little polystyrene balls bouncing.
This is a different frequency.
Before going on to the final area, we caught some of the Big Melt show, a reconstruction of how they made steel. This is the arc furnace.
We went to the final area, Earth. The set up is quarrying "rocks" and these get picked up by the children and taken somewhere by wheelbarrow before going on conveyor belts and distributed either back to the "quarry" or to a chute.
Can you see the "rocks" on the conveyor belt?
