Went to see this with an 11 year old and an 8 year old this weekend and they totally loved it. It is a fun interactive show whic communicates basic science concepts with lots of explosions, fun and humour. There was a male and female presenter which was great for my daughter as science stuff is often quite make dominated and they weren't at all boffin - like. I felt it really got across the concepts and made it fun but also educational and accessible. We vist the science museum and the launch pad gallery anyway so had high expectations as they really enjoy that. I would recommend this show for anyone- it's definitely not for geeks and my kids were laughing their heads off.

Oh - its in our area on DHs birthday. DD is 13 and v. sciency. Has been going to explosions&fun type events all her life - just wondering how 'basic' the 'basic science' is - something that's perfect for 8-11 might or might not work. What do you reckon?

I reckon fine , science museum are pretty professional and make it enjoyable so even if he knows all the answers, the way it's put across is enjoyable and funny . Adults were enjoying it and seemed to be a big age range in the audience

I reckon he'd be fine , science museum are pretty professional and make it enjoyable so even if he knows all the answers, the way it's put across is enjoyable and funny . Adults were enjoying it and seemed to be a big age range in the audience too. There were younger and older children with adults and it was pitched well and was a great show- not too kiddy

It's on near me but only at 7pm on a Monday and 1:30pm on a Tuesday (both school days). Guess they're probably hoping to have school bookings on the Tuesday afternoon. Part of me wishes I could just take them out of school for the afternoon but not sure school would like it grin

we're booked in for this saturday in belfast

soooooo excited
