Street Scientists by name, street scientists by trade, meet the team from Newcastle University who have mastered the art of science busking. From mind warping optical illusions to getting jiggy to the sound of a slinky, their demonstrations are sure to amaze and excite.

What does ketchup in a bottle of water have in common with a submarine? And, how can someone guess your birthday using only binary numbers? You’ll have to bump into the Street Scientists roaming around the exhibition to find out.
