Marty Jopson – Science Bloke
The Science of Everyday Life
In this brilliant scientific tour of household science, Dr Marty Jopson addresses conundrums such as: What really makes cakes rise? Why do soap bubbles burst and how you get the quartz out of a clock using a hammer?
Marty will also be channelling Indiana Jones with his latest prop and whipping up a million volts too!
The Human Guinea Pig
Come and meet Tom Warrender, The Human Guinea Pig, at The Big Bang North West and see some of the amazing medical procedures he has been through, just for the fun of it! Tom will also be looking for volunteers to become mini guinea pigs as he runs a series of demos live on stage!
Museum of Science and Industry
In this energetic, fun and investigative science show, you will learn how to think scientifically and harness the energy of explosions. We need your scientific enquiry skills to discover the fuel source of an accidental historical explosion. On our journey to discover the difference between fire and explosions, we’ll make a dust flame-thrower, stun you with steam and even pop cow trumps!
Muir McDonald, Head of Resourcing at ScottishPower said: “We are delighted to be a returning sponsor for the Show Stage at Big Bang North West, an event which plays a vital role in inspiring young people to become the engineers and scientists we will need to address the future challenges faced by the energy sector.
At ScottishPower we are making huge investments to help the UK meet its future energy challenges, so it is vital that we continue to invest in attracting, nurturing and retaining the talented people who will shape our success and continue the progress we are making.”
