One hour, demo-based shows suitable for key stage 3 and 4, family and large audiences.

'Under Pressure' brings levitation, implosions, explosions and rockets demostrations for people to take part in.

‘What You Know and Why You Don’t’ brings the experience of the greatest hits of psychology and neuroscience to your audience. Covers attention, influence, social psychology, biopsychology and neuroimaging in a practical way.

‘Subliming the Ridiculous’ celebrates the move from alchemy to chemistry and disproving the four classical Greek elements; earth, air, fire and water. It covers: turning copper into ‘gold’, the scientific method, drawing a vacuum, starting fire with air pressure, burning wire wool to form new compounds, identifying acids, making and burning hydrogen, splitting water in two.

‘Half Baked Heroes’ shares the chemistry, physics and biology of everyday items found in the pantry. It covers: miraculin and taste receptors, pineapple and enzymes, the gases in prepackaged food, making gases including hydrogen explosion, supercooling water, whipping up marmite, non-newtonian fluids – custard and ketchup. As many of these as possible involve at least one volunteer from the audience. Much from this show is something students can explore more when they are home.
