Doc Yard’s Summer Show

Doc Yard Dynamics: How Forces Shaped the Dockyard

After a year of lockdowns and self-isolation, Doc. Yard is bursting with excitement to escape from his secret lab and share his love of science with you at The Historic Dockyard Chatham this summer.

Archimedes, the world’s most famous mathematician and inventor, said: ‘Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.’

Surely this can’t be true?

Budding scientists will have enormous fun with forces as Doc and his able assistant Bunsen explore how forces shaped the Dockyard. Is Archimedes’ bold statement really possible?

You’ll participate in hands-on science experiments before meeting Doc and Bunsen in their all-new interactive show. You’ll leave the show being able to answer questions like ‘How can a ship weighing thousands of tonnes float on water?‘ ‘Why did Archimedes jump out of the bath shouting ‘Eureka’?’ and ‘Which falls faster a feather or a hammer?’

Doc. Yard Dynamics is showing daily through the summer holiday from 31 July to 30 August.

Show times are:

Monday – Friday: 11.00, 13.00 and 15.00

Saturday and Sunday: 12.00 and 14.00.

Time slots can be booked on arrival.
