The Royal Institution brings its live science show How To Hack Your Home to Cardiff this month – and you could be there with this prize giveaway!
Making engineering fun for families, the hour-long show takes place at 6.30pm on Monday 13th March in the Reardon Smith Theatre at the National Museum Cardiff.
Featuring robots, live experiments and demonstrations, presenter Professor Danielle George MBE will show how to adapt and transform devices we use every day to get them to do extraordinary things and to see the familiar technology in a new light.
The show is particularly aimed at children aged 10+, although it’s suitable for all ages. The Royal Institution hopes it will inspire children to use their imagination to change the world, just like the many great inventors and engineers from our past and present.
Danielle says, “Today’s generation of young people are in a truly unique position. The technology we use and depend on every day is expanding and developing at a phenomenal rate and so our society has never been more equipped to be creative and innovative.”
She also hopes the show will encourage more girls to see it as a future career. She says, “Sadly only 8.2% of engineering professionals today are women, despite the fact it is an incredibly fascinating, challenging and rewarding career. I want young people across the country to realise that they have the power to change the world right from their bedroom, kitchen table or garden shed, and to consider the incredible opportunities a career in engineering could offer them.”
The show is based on the 2014 Royal Institution CHRISTMAS LECTURES, Sparks Will Fly: How to Hack your Home, which was broadcast on BBC4.
Danielle is a Professor of Radio Frequency Engineering at the University of Manchester and since presenting the world-renowned CHRISTMAS LECTURES has won a number of prestigious awards for her contribution to engineering through public engagement.
Tickets for the show cost £12 for adults and £10 for concessions and are available online – and there’s currently a buy one get one free offer running.
