KBC visits The Science Museum – and so can you!
Categories: Kid Blog News



It’s half term here in the UK and the team from KidsBlogClub have been out and about enjoying London’s Science Museum. If you haven’t been, the museum is well worth a visit as it’s full of amazing hands on exhibits that are both fun and educational. And it’s free too!

If you are museum mad like us you can combine it with a visit to the Natural History Museum and the V & A, since they’re all very close together.

And if you live too far from London to visit, a piece of The Science Museum is taking to the road this summer to entertain science-mad kids all around the UK. Check out the trailer for The Energy Show:



The Science Museum’s The Energy Show is a mixture of live action and  animation, all set in a steampunk workshop full of gadgets and chemicals. Futuristic science students Annabella and Phil race against time to prove their knowledge of energy through a series of live experiments. Helped by a virtual assistant named i-nstein, Annabella and Phil use liquid nitrogen, hydrogen rockets and electricity to create a dangerously exciting experience.

We thought it was lots of fun, educational in an exciting way, and very very LOUD!

Experiments and demonstrations in The Energy Show include:

  • Flaming methane bubbles
  • Flowers frozen solid by liquid nitrogen
  • Lights powered by Plasma Balls
  • A hair-raising Van de Graaff generator
  • Soaring hydrogen-filled rockets


The Energy Show is suitable for all ages from 7+ years and is especially good for Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 students. But be warned that explosive experiments = loud bangs so be prepared to put your fingers in your ears!

The Energy Show is  travelling to 34 theatres around the UK. London’s Science Museum is the first and last stop on the tour, with performances in April and July/August 2014. You can find out where it’s visiting and book tickets here.  – Tickets start from around £10.

And if you can’t make it here are some free Energy Show-related activities for you to download at home.
