Forces are all around us and affect everything we do. Join us for an hour-long show where we explore the world of forces with everyday objects and show you fun demonstrations about motion, fire and rockets with the help of an incredible scientist who lived almost 300 hundred years ago. You’ve probably read about these things in textbooks or heard about them from your teachers but here’s a chance to experience science in action.
This event is meant for children (9-12 years only, accompanied with parents or max 2 adults)
Science Fuse is a social enterprise working to promote an interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in the UK and Pakistan. Our fun and hands-on learning programs engage children in immersive activities. These programs help develop not just science literacy but also critical-thinking, science enquiry, cognitive and communication skills in young learners. We help children foster a joy for learning, help them link science to their everyday lives and let them realize how STEM is not merely a subject they study in school but is in fact their ticket to understanding the world.
Lalah Rukh is the founder and CEO of Science Fuse and is deeply passionate about reforming learning environments for children in Pakistan. She has worked on developing, managing and delivering informal STEM learning experiences to thousands of children for the last six years, earlier at a social enterprise in Norway and more recently at The Science Museum in London which is one of largest science museums in the world, visited by almost 3.3 million people annually. She designs all our learning programs and brings STEM alive in classrooms across Pakistan. A typical day in her life usually involves launching rockets with children as they animatedly discuss Newton’s laws, writing stories based on the adventures of Gul Rukh – a child laborer who’s a remarkable science enthusiast and reaching out to schools, educators, social entrepreneurs and parents in Pakistan to talk about her work and philosophy. She strongly believes that if children especially those from underprivileged backgrounds get a chance to experience informal education, our world would be in a much better shape.
