Since 2004 Wonderstruck science shows and workshops have been all about inspiring wonder in the world around us. We work with children and adults in formal and informal settings to explore science in a hands-on, creative and spectacular way.
The last 16 years have been a wild ride. Wonderstruck science shows and workshops have spread the sciencey goodness to hundreds of schools across the UK with groups from year R to post-16. We’ve run workshops and shows for 10 children and we’ve run them for just under a thousand. We’ve performed shows at the Royal Institution, Cheltenham Science Festival, the Abu Dhabi Science Festival, the Bradford Science Festival and quite a few others. We’ve even ‘warmed up’ for Alesha Dixon at the huge Make the Future Live event at the Olympic Park, Stratford in 2017.
We’ve learned to do some crazy stuff. We can safely explode a car or a shed on stage (take your pick), take a shower in liquid nitrogen, use a 6-foot long jet engine as a hairdrier and set off 7 kilos of thermite safely on a school playing field.
What does the future hold? We’re always learning and we’re always developing new ideas so we couldn’t really say. But that’s the way we like it.
Following the example of the restaurant industry we’re now offering takeaways!
We’ve taken three of our most popular workshops and put them in boxes ready to ship out to schools. Each box contains a class-sized cornucopia of materials.
Each box contains enough materials for building 30 Fan-Powered Cars, 30 Rocket Cars or 30 Loudspeakers. Depending on which option you order each student in your class could be building their very own Fan-Powered Car, Rocket Car or Loudspeaker to take home. And we even throw in an extra one for the teacher.
The boxes are supported by comprehensive teacher notes, build instructions, videos and powerpoint presentations. We can even do a live introduction via Zoom or Teams if you prefer.
You can order by dropping us an email or direct from our online shop!

Our booking process is simple. You get in contact and we arrange a date. Try not to leave it to the last minute to avoid disappointment. We’re quick to respond but if you have a certain timeframe that suits you then let us know in the Message space below.
If the situation isn’t right for us to visit then we can do an online show for you and/or we can send you a workshop pack with all of the materials you need to run your own Fan-Powered Car Workshop or a Rocket Car Workshop.
