Just how much power can you generate with your legs? Try the Power Bike, and find out. Afterwards, examine your heartbeat – and try our Body Mass Index exhibit – to find out just how fit you really are(n't)...

Test your reflexes with our Batak machine: can you beat the best times for the Festival?

Exhibits for the under 12s: we'll have a full range of SCI-FUN Primer exhibits, for our younger visitors.

Find out more about the science behind carbon capture and storage: our interactive exhibit, manned by Geosciences students, will be on show for demonstrations and explanation throughout the day.
