Scientific Sue’s Black Cat

Rabbit in a magician’s hat

Discover the enchanting blend of science and drama in Scientific Sue’s Magical Science and Engineering Show, where her whimsical approach transforms this “Magic Show” into an entertaining and thought-provoking experience.

Engaging with toys, circus gadgets, and everyday household materials, Scientific Sue illuminates the profound impact of science and engineering on our daily lives. Join her on a journey where magical apprentices assist in unraveling the science and engineering behind captivating illusions and magic tricks.

Ever wondered if liquids can defy gravity? Scientific Sue explores this intriguing question and more, delving into the unseen forces surrounding us. From utilising the science of spin to defy gravity, harnessing electric forces to make objects float, to the captivating influence of marvellous magnets causing items to spin – embark on a magical exploration of these phenomena.

This immersive experience not only sparks curiosity and imagination in young audiences but also underscores the significance of science and engineering in shaping our everyday world.

Warning:  Danger Science Magic – Fun Guaranteed!

Lots of volunteers are required to help Scientific Sue recreate many famous magic and circus tricks and demonstrations. The physics of inertia is explored with the aid of a tablecloth and some very precious teapots. Who is Ernest the Bear? What is the scientific secret used to help him unicycle down a thin tightrope?

Physics of sound and air pressure.

Scientific Sue demonstrates how to turn a plastic straw into a musical instrument.

The Magical Science & Engineering Show aims to stimulate curiosity and imagination within your students so that they ultimately leave the show wanting to embark on the many problem-solving and design tasks set by Scientific Sue. The show is fast-paced, energetic and uses lots of volunteers.

All though this show is offered across all age and ability ranges, the demonstration content and scientific language varies significantly across this range, so when booking, it is important to stipulate the age and ability of your intended audience, however it is also a great show to book just for the pure fun of science and engineering!!
