The Science of Power at The British Motor Museum

Banbury Road, Gaydon, WARWICK, Warwickshire, CV35 0BJ
The Science of Power at The British Motor Museum

About

The 'POWER' Science shows run every day at 11am and 2.30pm where Professor Pickle and Doctor Pumpkin will explore different sources of power including jet, rocket and gas and bring them to life with a BANG!

Families are challenged to find the fastest car in the Museum with the family trail. Simply pick up a trail sheet on arrival and visit the different zones in the Museum to record the car's top speed and discover which is the fastest of them all! Plus every day at 1.30pm visitors can join the Family 'POWER' Tour with the costumed explainer 'M the Mechanic' to and find out all about our gas turbine powered cars and how they work. 

If you like to get hands on there is also the chance to make a 'Jet Powered Car' and race them along our drag strip to see how far and fast they go. Saturdays & Sundays, the cars will be 'jet powered' using balloons, whereas from Monday to Friday the STEM ambassadors from MOD Kineton will be delivering the activity with cars made from K'nex.

All activities are included in the Museum admission. There is no need to pre-book.
