Stronger By Design

This interactive, Explainer-led show show explores the science of forces and structures and is a great introduction to simple engineering.

Come and help us make a special version of a club sandwich with a secret ingredient - you! Or try sitting on over 500 nails on our evil Chair of Doom. Plus we've got some additional fun facts and information for people who have seen – or are going to see – the Stronger by Design show, where you can learn about structures and forces as well as try out some fun experiments.

Please be aware that the show content may contain loud noises, bright lights and materials that some people might be sensitive to. If you have any queries about whether the show is suitable for you please ask the presenter or another Explainer before the show.
