There’s computer coding, astronomy, lasers, and more activities are coming –

… and meet a wizard, four cowboys, and a show that’s come direct from the Royal Institution in London. Dr Steven ‘Jake’ Jacobs, aka Wizard IV, former chief scientist for the Discovery Channel, has brought the four members of the legendary country group Riders in the Sky to help him tell stories of science. It may be about lighting a campfire in his home state of Kansas, or blowing up a balloon in an Orkney school on his latest visit, but it’s the simple things that show up science best, he says.
