The Science of Dragons Show

Join Scientific Sue as she brings dragons to life! Inspired by Cressida Cowell’s ‘How to Train your Dragon’ Sue explores the physics of flight and the engineering behind capturing a dragon.

Norbert, the fire-breathing dragon and Jessica, the icy fog-breathing dragon are celebrating the hatching of their baby, and this little dragon can’t fly yet. Find out if it’s possible to use science to help ‘Stormfly’ the baby dragon to fly.

The perfect way to bring fun, magic and laughter to STEAM, and see how the Arts enhances science, technology, engineering and maths.
