Eat My Science!
Stefan Gates, BBC TV presenter and live show presenter, presents an amazing edible science show based on his book Science You Can Eat (Dorling Kindersley) and CBBC series Incredible Edibles. The show features rockets made from food, edible chemical reactions, vortex cannons, flamethrowing, live insects and farting robots. Stefan uses explosive stunts to transform complex science into an unforgettable, relevant and funny edible adventure. These shows aren't cheap but they are spectacular, awe-inspiring and totally unforgettable.
The show covers multiple curriculum points, especially:
Physics (especially fluid dynamics and acoustics)
The show comes in various forms and sizes depending on venue and budget. For arenas and very large auditoriums we have huge props, inflatables, mini-motorbikes and huge explosions. For smaller venues we have smaller kit, less devastating explosions and more tasting opportunities!
Gastronaut live shows mix solid education with unforgettable entertainment and Stefan is always happy to stay for photos, autographs, chat and book signings.
Stefan Gates is a BBC and CBBC TV presenter of 20 series and documentaries about food and science. He has written nine books and performs shows to audiences of over 150,000 every year at major science events, schools and festivals across the world.
