Scientists from the University of Warwick leave their labs to entertain and amaze audiences with experiments and real life science that open a window onto some of the world class research happening here on campus. Be warned, these evenings involve audience participation, head scratching, explosions and usually quite a lot of mess!

Tue 26 Nov

Scientists and technicians from the physics department and WMG at Warwick University present a night of lasers and explosive experiments. Which chemicals deserve to be on Santa’s naughty list? Why is light so important to life on earth? Why are two technicians from the physics lab planning on building a rocket to the North Pole? Join James Lloyd-Hughes, Paul McCarroll, Alan Burton, Evé Wheeler Jones and Alex Baker to find out. Come ready to join in, be surprised and have your socks blown off in the biggest explosion they’ll let us do in the Arts Centre!

Tue 3 Dec

Scientists from the chemistry and physics departments of the University of Warwick present some wild and wacky experiments. How do the laws of physics work in a cartoon universe? Is there a polymer in your pocket? What will Ally Caldecote explode this year? Join Ally, Rachel Edwards and Mike Jolley as they answer these questions and more. With a healthy dose of silliness (and some expert science) we promise to entertain, educate and enthral the whole family!

Please note: there is no lift access to seats in the balconies or choir stalls for the duration of the Warwick 20:20 Project. If you have any queries, please contact Box Office.
