add to [my planner]

The joker-scientists from POST (Perugia's Office of Science and Technology) will guide the intrepid explorers on their mission: to find their lost centre of gravity and investigate the mystery of secret forces which, hidden within our bodies, allow us to perform everyday movements but also surprising feats of physical prowess.
Walking, running, jumping, dancing... it all seems so obvious.  But what do you call and how do you find the hidden point that governs all the forces in play?  The boys and girls will find out for themselves by testing their skills, creating moving sculptures and performing balancing acts. Like for instance: how to experiment with the laws of physics by constructing a tight-rope walker from recycled materials.

Each workshop lasts an hour.
