We would like to propose an interactive session when participants can bring physical demonstrations or videos of demonstrations in actions. This is an opportunity to share ideas and good practice in creating engaging content for visitors to demonstrate our science and engineering - and have some fun! Some of the examples we can show were custom built, some (such as our accelerator in a salad bowl!) can be made at very little cost. It would be good to discuss both failures and successes and how activities can be tailored to satisfy our various audiences.
