The Great Big Science Show

Perfect for audiences with a range of ages and interests, the Great Big Science Show ticks all the boxes - foaming chemical reactions, explosions, liquid nitrogen, fireballs and lots of audience interaction. We'll keep the pace and energy high for maximum crowd-pleasing engagement.




  • Liquid nitrogen - famous demonstrations including shrinking a balloon, making clouds and smashing an "unbreakable" rubber ball

  • Dry ice - exploring the strange properties of frozen carbon dioxide

  • Rockets - launch various kinds of rockets

  • Fireball - bright, billowy flame that smells like toast and waffles

  • The “Wow Bottle” - colourful flame shoots into the air and stops suddenly

  • Chemical reactions - fizzing, frothing and colour changing concoctions

  • Elephant's toothpaste - an expanding "worm" of steaming foam grows out of nowhere

  • Giant 1-metre balloon explosion

  • Coloured flames

*Demonstrations performed will be customised to suit the audience age and may depend on venue or time constraints.
