Science Busking Collective Street Performance

Posted in Uncategorized on June 30, 2014 by geevor

Science busking is a type of interactive street performance where science is used to amaze and entertain. On Friday 4th July, The Science Busking Collective will be performing science to and with the public at Penzance Farmers Market.


The project was put together by Jo Buckingham, learning development officer at Geevor Tin Mine. Students from Cape Cornwall School make up The Collective.

The students first came to Geevor to receive training in Science busking techniques and learn the tricks and performances.  As the student’s discovered, the science involved does not just fascinate an audience, but was also vital to the tin mining industry.


If you would like to come and have some fun interacting with science and meet and watch The Collective why not come down to the market on Friday.
