Learn how to make objects invisible.
Walk on water!
Do the impossible!
Its far more magical to find out its
not a trick…Its science!
Welcome to Jason Latimer's Impossible Science Festival - Education Through Curiosity! Be inspired to ask questions, learn more, and wonder!
"The goal of the Impossible Science Festival is to promote education through curiosity," said Jason Latimer, host and designer of the Impossible Science Festival. "By exploring subjects that seem impossible but showing how they can be made possible through applied science, visitors will have a memorable, hands-on learning experience that will blow their minds!"
Education Through Curiosity
This event is based around five themes: invisibility, levitation, animation transformation and super powers, and each theme incorporates demonstrations that festival attendees will be able to observe or try for themselves. For invisibility, attendees will be able to use the refractive properties of Pyrex to make objects disappear in corn oil. They can also learn how to manipulate light—a precursor to invisibility—using a laser pen and tonic water, or make the invisible come to life with a homemade laser microscope.
For levitation, visitors can experience how concepts like the Bernoulli principle, static electricity and air pressure can make objects like ping pong balls, tinsel or even screwdrivers appear to levitate!
The animation stations will use static electricity to make tissue paper dance, surface tension to make objects scoot along a water surface and sound waves to make a toothpick dance across a wine glass, harmonics to make patterns in sand—plus you can learn how a battery, a magnet and a screw can be designed to make a small motor.
The transformation stations will show attendees how to make a square bubble or a fireproof balloon. And visitors can harness their own super powers when they create energy from pennies or walk on liquid Oobleck!
At the Impossible Science Festival there are over 25 interactive demonstration stations and five “make it, take it” stations where attendees can make their own impossible science creations to take home.
Want to schedule an Impossible Science Festival for at your local Science Center! Contact us, we would love to hear from you and see how we can make that possible!
OUR FIRST FESTIVAL WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!!!
NOW WE ARE EXPANDING TO OTHER SCIENCE CENTERS, SCHOOLS, AND MUSEUMS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY! WANT ONE FOR YOUR LOCATION?
PLEASE EMAIL US!
2016 & 2017 DATES COMING SOON!

“The only thing that separates the impossible from the possible
is the individual that is wondering about the right question...
And that next question could come from any of us.”

1. The study of the seemingly unattainable. The category of systematic arrangements that
challenges the unknown, inconceivable, and unworkable. (i.e. beyond the edge of the
universe, the cure to cureless diseases, unfeasible technologies, invisibility, levitation,
“Flight was an impossible science at one time, until someone asked a question about lift.”
