Science Museum Live presents The Energy Show: explosive family theatre for curious minds.
Following a sold-out run in the Easter holidays, The Energy Show returns to the Science Museum for July and August.
Methane bubbles are set alight to make fireballs, liquid nitrogen freezes flowers, hydrogen balloons explode and rockets are fired into the audience. Stand well back and cover your ears – theatre just got dangerously exciting!
Two futuristic science students race against time to prove their knowledge of energy. With help from the incredible virtual lab-assistant, i-nstein, and a steampunk workshop full of gadgets and chemicals, they explore, experiment and explode anything and everything they can find, building to a breath-taking climax as they demonstrate all forms of energy, live on stage, in under five minutes.
Produced by the world famous Science Museum in London, this show is suitable for everyone aged 7+.
'Fast, furious and dangerously exciting!’ (Wanstead & Woodford Guardian)
‘I imagine that physics teachers everywhere will be blessing the Science Museum for promoting their topic so imaginatively and entertainingly.’ (allinlondon.co.uk)
'My kids barely stopped gasping and giggling throughout. They now want to be scientists and inventors and have set up a lab in their room.’ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (Mumsnet.com)
