tick tick BOOM! Holiday science show with Fizzics Education

…tick, tick BOOM!

…tick, tick BOOM!

A fun science show performance where we blow stuff up, all in the name of science!

Exactly what the kids want…a science show all about explosions!

What better way to get children into science than doing 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.

However, is not just a series of tricks. Our experienced presenter will cover a multitude of concepts, for example:

  • 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
  • All run safely under controlled conditions by experienced & trained science educators.

Ideal for sites that want a professional large stage performance.

In addition, a show catering up to 240 people is also more economical per child.

Excite the kids these holidays to get back into science or celebrate the vacation break with a BANG!

Vacation Care Reviews

Bellevue Hill BASC

I liked the interaction with the children, level of control of children and interactive nature of the experiments. The ice cream was exciting for the children. The show was terrific and really maintained the children's attention. They listened so enthusiastically and were really excited by all the experiments. Thanks!
