Forces and Motion
This show will help pupils gain an understanding that a force is a push or a pull and how the effects of gravity and friction affect the motion of objects.
An entertaining and informative show about Sir Isaac Newton, one of England’s most influential scientists and how his discoveries influenced the way we look at the world today.
Pupils will learn about the life and times of this great man and our presenter will bring Newton’s Three Laws of Motion to life with exciting demonstrations.
After looking at his Three Laws of Motion we investigate weight distribution, shock absorption and the spreading of forces with interesting and fun experiments.
It is with great sadness that we announce the closure of The Observatory Science Centre from 18th March 2020 until further notice.
This decision was made in the light of the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and recent UK government advice, which our charity has been carefully monitoring and following.
The safety and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our absolute priority during this difficult time.
Given the uncertainty we are all facing, we don’t yet know when we will re-open. If you have booked group visits / upcoming events etc. we will be in contact when we return to work.
We sincerely wish good health for you and your families during these uncertain times and we can’t wait to welcome you back as we continue our 25th anniversary celebrations.
