2018 Faraday Show: Magic? or Physics?

The Faraday Show is UBC’s annual science show for children, presented by UBC Physics & Astronomy. This year join us to explore the scientific secrets behind magical wonders! Why would something roll uphill, not downhill? Can you make something moving away come back just by thinking? How can a plate float in mid-air, with no one touching it? How can we make things disappear, and reappear? And, how do make time go backwards, to un-mix colours that you already mixed together? We will explore these questions, and more, through lively demonstrations and hands-on activities. This show is for children of ALL AGES, and adults who are young at heart!

WHERE:LIFE 2201, 6138 Student Union Boulevard(UBC CAMPUS). The North Parkade is the closest parking lot to the LIFE Building.

WHEN:SUNDAY, December 9, 2018, 2:00-3:30 PM

COST : FREE!(But bring non-perishable food items to support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank!)
