The Supercool Show

 

Overview

This action-packed show investigates the science of heat and temperature, melting and boiling points, changes of state and the transfer of energy.

What's the coolest anything can get? What has an armpit got to do with temperature?! Learn how heat moves, hear the loudest balloon explosion ever, and find out what it takes to make instant ice cream.

An unmissable chance to learn about energy transfer and changes of state with practical demonstrations you’ll never forget.
