Just in time for the summer holidays, there’s a new show in town. For six weeks only, Science Museum Live presents ‘The Energy Show’, an exciting live drama with a gripping story and plenty of whizz-popping explosions and experiments along the way.

See methane bubbles ignite into fireballs, lights powered by plasma balls, liquid nitrogen freezing flowers so they shatter like glass, and a hair-raising Van de Graaff generator – and prepare yourself as hydrogen rockets are fired into the audience.

Staged in the Science Museum’s new theatre space, the story follows Annabella and Phil, two futuristic science students, who have to race against time to prove their knowledge of energy. They get help from their virtual lab assistant, i-nstein, and the action happens in their spectacular steampunk workshop full of gadgets and chemicals. Of course, this is where the real show kicks in for budding boffins, as Annabella and Phil have to demonstrate live experiments on stage.

Watch out – theatre just got dangerously exciting!

The show is aimed at ks2 and 3 children but its cleverly written dual level humour and lesson is just as educational for adults. I am a deputy head teacher and would love it if it were possible to take the children as a school but unfortunately it ends as the summer holidays do. Therefore get in quick, and give your kids a treat of explosions and naughtiness! All the while learning some amazing science facts, which will intrigued them no end.
