inspire awe and ignite curiosity in spectacular kinetic fashion.

What we do

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.

Wonderstruck STEMbox Workshops

Following the example of the restaurant industry we’re now offering takeaways!

 

We’ve taken two 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 or Rocket Cars.  Depending on which option you order each student in your class could be building their very own Fan-Powered Car or Rocket Car 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 if you prefer.

At the moment ordering is done by dropping us an email but we’re working on building an online store so things should be a bit more streamlined in the coming weeks.

What Tony had to say…
