STFC Talking Science Online - KenMystery by Dr Ken Farquhar
KenMystery is a magical chemistry and science show that is inspired by the ancient Greeks belief that everything was made up of and explained by four elements: earth, water, air and you guessed it ...fire! Be prepared to be wowed as Dr Ken uncovers some strange science in the kitchen. He will find out how weird water really can be, attempt some "airmazing" levitation and even discover how to make fire appear and safely disappear!

We would love you to join us and be a scientist for the day by following along or trying some of Dr Ken's experiments in your own time after the show! All you will need is an empty soda can, a plastic drinking cup, breakfast box size cardboard, scissors, a cup or jug of water and a large plastic bowl.

Remember we care about your health and safety, so don’t forget to set up experiments away from electrical devices like computers and iPads, and wipe up any water straight away to avoid slipping on it!

(Suitable for age 8-12, but younger children are most welcome).
