Have you ever wondered how to slow down time? Or what would happen if the Earth stopped spinning? Or whether you’d be OK if you fell into a black hole?
Well, wonder no more. Join Hiba Noor Khan on a journey across the universe and learn all about the phenomenal laws of physics – from the tiniest building blocks of our body to the enormous stars that burn in our skies, light years away.
How to Spaghettify Your Dog is bursting with fascinating physics facts that will explain everything you want to know, and more, about the curiosities of our cosmos. Featuring easy-to-follow experiments, eye-catching illustrations by Waterstones Book Prize winner Harry Woodgate and plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, this hands-on book will demystify physics and bring science to life.
Copies of Hiba’s latest book ‘How to Spaghettify Your Dog: and other science secrets of the universe’ is available to purchase after the event.
This event is particularly suitable for ages 7+. As with all our family theatre talks, this event is designed to be enjoyed by adults and children together. All young people under the age of 13 need to be accompanied by a paying adult and those aged 4 and above need a ticket to attend.
