This fun-filled explosive show explores the more serious subject: Our impact on the world around us. Scientific Sue will call upon volunteers to help her investigate a range of fuels and gases which will be used to propel a hotch potch of house hold items skywards! Danger! Fun guaranteed!
This show has been developed to support Education for Sustainable Development
About 30 years ago, when crude oil was suddenly in short supply, and became expensive, scientists, engineers and companies began to investigate alternative energy sources. Today we are all much more aware that at some point in the near future the supplies of fossil fuels; including crude oil, coal and natural gas, and also nuclear fuel will run out.
If we wish to maintain our way of life, and if less developed countries are to be afforded the opportunities to improve their standard of living, we must generate about half of our energy from renewable sources within the next few years.
