The Big Bounce 2021: watch now

Watch highlights from our free festival of physics for the East End of Glasgow.


The Big Bounce came back! After 2020’s online festival live from the Barrowlands, this time the whole family got hands-on with exciting and inspiring physics at our amazing venues in the Barras.

A celebration of curiosity and discovery, with amazing family science shows, fun workshops, and all sorts of drop-in activities in the main hall – and it was all completely free.

Families from across the East End came to experience the physics behind robots and rainbows, timelords and pirates, and everything in between. Physics can solve problems including climate change, and make incredible discoveries from atoms to stars. And you helped!
