Secondary School Shows

Our shows are live, exciting and interactive and are performed by passionate science literate presenters who are positive role models for science. 

With both KS3 and KS4 shows to choose from.  Every one of our shows is purpose built to support the school curriculum and to advance pupils’ learning objectives.

We present the shows in your own school hall, removing the hassle and cost of taking them out of school and having to provide supply cover.
