Interested in things that go whiz/bang or got any kids or grandkids that are? Then ‘Nanogirl’ Michelle Dickinson’s early evening show in the Town Hall is for you! Prepare to have your mind blown as Nanogirl explores the wonders of cloud power, wind power, magnet power and fire power. Tickets available here.
"Nanogirl" is one of the special science functions in ThinkScience which debuts on Saturday March 14 2015 as part of the Auckland Arts Festival’s White Night and Family Weekend where there is something for everyone!
If blowing things up is not for you, how about this? Award-winning scientist Dr Siouxsie Wiles has challenged a group of artists and illustrators to create living works of art using nothing more than a cotton swab, a solution of harmless glowing bacteria and a collection of petri dishes. See the glowing masterpieces in Q Theatre – but be quick, the works will only shine for the day before the bacteria run out of nutrients and fade away. Details here.
