Izzy’s Incredible Adventure

izzy_beckyMeet Izzy. She’s on an adventure to see a friend, but needs lots of help to get there! Can you help her?

In this show, Izzy and your audience will discover different kinds of transport together to get across, land, sea and air!

What types of shape make a boat float the best? And do you know how a hot air balloon flies? Explore Izzy’s explosive rocket, and ride a real life hovercraft!

This show involves and excites the whole audience, investigating the way we travel and explaining the science behind transport. This show is a memorable experience for everyone! The show is regularly booked in combination with our other primary school shows, and has even been hand-selected by SciEnts as one of the very best educational science entertainment shows.
