Physics in the Field at Balmoral

The IOP’s Physics in the Field team donned their wellies and took to the Balmoral Show at Maze in May. The event is the largest agricultural show in Northern Ireland, with around 80,000 attending over three days. Along side prize cattle parades and sheep shearing competitions the physicists, who included a highly enthusiastic group of students from QUB, brought a range of fun demos. Balloon kebabs, Alka Seltzer rockets and waterproof hankies were just three of the tricks which kept adults and children alike entertained during the event.
