We are told air is all around us, but how do we KNOW? Where is the PROOF?!


In this interactive show, we'll be working together to make some observations, then doing some experiments to touch, hear, see, smell and taste the air. We'll gather lots of evidence to prove that really is there!

This show was developed to work with a range of audiences. The participatory element ensures that everyone becomes a scientist!
