See gigantic bubbles, flying toilet paper, hair-raising electricity experiments, levitating beach balls, volunteers on a nail chair, a giant gyroscope, fireballs, colored shadows, a flame equalizer and much more

This great ‘science sampler’ was originally developed as the main stage show for 2008 Australian Science Festival in Canberra as a way of introducing science into the greater community. Perfect for schools that want a professional large stage performance in their school hall, with an added bonus that a show catering up to 240 students at a time is also more economical per student.

Students love this as an end of school term treat or as something to get the kids back into science!
