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?

Izzy and your audience will need to discover and explore many different kinds of transport. Perhaps a live hot air balloon inflated before the audience’s eyes? Or work out what shapes make a boat float the best. Explore Izzy’s explosive rocket, and ride a real life hovercraft.

This show involves and excites the whole audience, investigating the way we travel, explaining the science behind transport. This exciting 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.
