About the event
Ever wondered why food tastes funny when you have a cold? Or what happens when you get dizzy? Buckle up for a whirlwind tour through the senses you're familiar with – and some you might have never heard of – but which use every day without knowing it with Science Communicator Ginny Smith.
Featuring interactive illusions and demonstrations that the whole audience can get involved in, this show inspires families to explore their senses, and questions their assumptions about the world. We will uncover evidence that we don’t just see with our eyes, but also with our brains, and learn that our senses are more connected than you might think.
To take part in the interactive elements of the show, you’ll need:
a fruity sweet (or something else fruit flavoured)
a mint sweet (or something else mint flavoured)
a pen or pencil
a piece of paper
This event will premiere on Edinburgh Science's YouTube account at 10.30am on Thu 1 Jul and be available to access on-demand until 10.30am on Fri 2 Jul.
Presented by Braintastic Science
