...tick, tick BOOM!

A fun science show performance where we blow stuff up!
In the name of science of course :)

Exactly what the kids want!

Isn't it just? What better way to get children into science than to do the stuff they want to see!
Originally designed to be run at the Powerhouse Museum, this large stage performance gets noisy as we explore the science behind explosions and explain why chemical safety is so important. This is not just a series of tricks though, our experienced presenter will cover a multitude of concepts:
  • air pressure differentials.
  • exothermic vs endothermic chemical reactions.
  • the effect of surface area on reaction rates
  • combustion requirements.
  • properties of liquid nitrogen
  • applications of controlled explosions and more...
Ideal for sites that want a professional large stage performance, with an added bonus that a show catering up to 240 people at a time is also more economical per student. Excite the kids these holidays to get back into science or celebrate the vacation break with a BANG!
