S3 E3. How do Electric Cars Drive? Featuring The Royal Institution, How long does it take to build a motorway? Why do we get carsick?

Thursday, 23 September

In this week's show we answer three questions from Ryan, Willa and Orla with help from special guest expert Rachel Dorris at the Royal Institution in London.


We find out all about electric cars, how many are made each day, why they could be great and how we need to thank Michael Faraday who invented the electric motor at the Royal Institution for their existence!


Hear how you can win family tickets to a show at The Royal Institution in London!


Next we discuss how long it takes to build motorways and the kinds of things that go into building one. Plus, which county in the UK has no motorways?


Do you ever get carsick? Find out why and what you can do to feel less sick!
