The Science Tent is a mix of science based performances on the Science Stage, timetabled science, technology workshops and drop-in sessions. Join The Rasberry Pi Foundation and Code Club in their Astro Pi workshops - Tim Peake has one on the International Space Station with him! Explore comets and asteroids and learn how to cook up your own hairy star, make a CD Hovercraft, then make a HUMAN Hovercraft! Launch a Paper Rocket with STEAM, Make a Sound Straw, join the Silly Science team Slime Workshop and much more!  Join Sirius Astronomy as he explores comets and asteroids, shows you how to cook up your own hairy star and then afterwards get hands on with some space rock samples and  have a chance to talk life the universe and everything and of course...try on the replica space suit! You can also watch mindboggling performances from the legendary Silly Science, Science Magic and even Science Rap! We have tons to stimulate and fascinate every age group...and that includes you mums and dads!
