Science LIVE! Under Pressure

We put science under pressure in this show. We’ll demonstrate Bernoulli’s principle with a 10-foot-long bag and just your breath, demonstrate how much air weighs by crushing a can, try to burst balloons with hundreds of nails, and make a huge combustion in our “whoosh bottle.”

Morehead's innovative "Science LIVE!" shows in Morehead’s Science Stage captivate students of all ages! Each “Science LIVE!” show engages the audience and asks for volunteers to participate in exciting science demonstrations. Specific demonstrations may vary depending on grade level.

Best for

Ages 5 and older, or Grades 1 and up.
