Glebelands School hosted another Community Science Show called Science Pranks presented by Steve Mould on Thursday 27th April. Steve is a prolific science communicator being on a number of TV shows such as the BBC’s The One Show and Britain’s Brightest. During the evening, Steve took the audience through how to use the principles of science so you can prank or confuse your parent’s or friends, including a trick of how to open a bottle of water so it leaks all over someone!

Steve’s relaxed engaging style got the crowd literally to the edge of their seat as he demonstrated some common phenomena, which can be applied to prank people. There were huge amounts of audience participation including the Mayor of Waverley Cllr Chris Storey and the Chairman of Cranleigh Parish Council Cllr Mary Foryszewski who were both brought into the show. Steve showed how our senses could be used to confuse us by switching our ears around, how some senses confuse each other and how you can manipulate this. Overall it was a very enjoyable evening and there was a real buzz in the room. We are looking to really engage the students so that they are inspired to go into the field of science and can see the enjoyment that it can give. Look out for our next show in the autumn and throughout the next academic year.
