MORAY SCHOOL CHILDREN experience a hair-raising science show next month when a team from the London Science Museum roll up to Forres Town Hall.

In a fascinating demonstration the experts aim to answer question such was why did Luigi Galvani make a dead frog dance, and why did Benjamin Franklin fly his kite in a lighting storm?

These and many more questions will be answered as the London visitors take their audience through a journey of electrifying science history – including showing just what 250,000 volts of electricity looks like close-up.

Eight 45-minutes shows aimed at school children from Primary 7 to first year will be performed – but the general public can also come along on September 21 at 6.30pm, however booking is required online via the Eventbrite website.

Anne Owen, Project Development Officer (Heritage and Tourism) at the Falconer Museum said: “This is a fun and unique learning opportunity and a truly electrifying experience! Please sign up to Eventbrite early to avoid disappointment, it is free to attend.”

Schools or community groups who wish to attend the event should contact Anne Owen at the museum at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment.

The event compliments the Falconer Museums current exhibition, ‘Power to the People’ depicting the history and future of energy. The show has been made possible by a grant from The Berry Burn Community Fund to the Friends of the Falconer Museum and is part of the Findhorn Bay Arts Festival.
