Our physics maestro Steve Mould will be in Newcastle this coming March 12 and 13 for the Maker Faire, a cornucopia of robots, knitted inventions, combustion engines and all manner of homemade gadgetry.

He’ll be showing off two of his classic Guerilla Science shows: Sonic Fire, featuring our Reuben’s tube, which reveals the shapes of sonic waves with a string of dancing flames,  and his set of Small & Beautiful experiments, where he reveals the extraordinary in the ordinary with miniature explosions and magnetic monsters.
