Do you want to see everyday things become extraordinary scientific discoveries? Then come to StarTime’s Science Spectacular!

Be guided by StarTime’s seriously silly scientist Professor Dinglesplodge, who’ll show you some wicked science tricks! You’ll make your own lava lamp, pop rockets, bouncy balls and combine baking soda and vinegar to float balloons without using helium. Science Spectacular will give you the opportunity to make your own mini-science show and perform to your captive audience. The magic of science – check it out at StarTime!

Note: StarTime reserves the right to change science experiments should ingredients not be available at the last minute.
