Shocking Live Science Shows

Science gets messy at the Fleet

Don’t Try This At Home! is a series of exciting live shows, full of extreme science you won’t see anywhere else. Where else can you see an electrostatic generator make cereal fly out of your hand, or watch what happens when you attach toilet paper to a leaf blower? These shows are shocking, messy and loud, and are both educational and fun. Even the most innovative and creative young scientists can’t do these experiments anywhere else!

Don’t Try This At Home! live science shows begin at 11:15 a.m. and continue every hour at 15 minutes past the hour, and run for approximately 20 minutes each. After the show, head on down to the Tinkering Studio: Don’t Try This at Home, located in the Main Gallery, to try some more experiments that you can only do at the Fleet!
