Star Wars Day


Sat 4 May 2019


All Day


May the fourth be with you!

Celebrate Star Wars Day with Techniquest where the force is strong.

Can you resist the pull of the dark side when you meet Darth Vader and his stormtrooper, or will you go to the light and say hello to R2D2?

Launch rockets from our west terrace, discover the science behind the movies and use the force in our Mindflex zone to navigate objects through an obstacle course.

  • Use the force to guide a ball through an obstacle course
  • Build and launch your own rocket
  • Delve into the science that drove the production of the films in ‘The Science of Star Wars’
  • Make-and-take your favourite characters using Cubefold designs
  • Watch a screening of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope in the Science Theatre
  • Meet Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper
  • See life-size models of R2D2 and R5D4

May the force be with you.
