The Big Bounce

Big Bounce is back! After last year's online festival live from the Barrowlands, this time the whole family can get hands-on with exciting and inspiring physics at our amazing venues in the Barras!

The Big Bounce

About The Big Bounce

It's a celebration of curiosity and discovery, with amazing family science shows, fun workshops, and all sort of drop-in activities in the main hall - and it's all completely FREE! We’re also running a whole day of amazing online science events for those of you that are still staying at home.

Join us and other families this half-term to experience the physics behind robots and rainbows, timelords and pirates, and everything in-between. Physics can help to solve big issues like climate change, and make incredible discoveries from atoms to stars... but it needs you to get involved to do it!

Free lunch bags will be available for under 16s and their families.
