Join Dr Basil Singer as he gives a fun-packed, interactive and emonstration-laden talk that uses extreme sports to explain the basic principles of mechanics. How does a skateboarder jump? How does a breakdancer do a headspin? What does Sir Isaac Newton look like with a goatee?! What’s he got to do with skydiving? All these questions, and more, are answered using skateboards, BMX wheels, frisbee and acrobatics. Bring your skateboard and get involved!
