Magic Science Show

(Recommended for Primary Level)

Science can be full of mysteries too! Be a wizard yourself and partake in our “Magic Science” show. Waltz through a magical world with loads of magic science tricks that play with colour changes, fire and smoke, and seem to defy natural laws of nature. Our chief wizards can even read your mind! So what are you waiting for?

Air-mazing Science Show 

(Recommended for Primary Level)

It’s a bird, it’s plane! No, it is just air! Air keeps us alive and helps us in many ways. However, what is air?  Is air matter? What happens if air gets hot or cold? This special air show will answer all these questions with quirky and fascinating science demonstrations for everyone to enjoy!

Learn about the properties of air and how air pollution can affect us!

*Energy, What’s That? Show

(Recommended for Primary Level)

Energy is all around us and they exist in different forms. Learn more about energy through various exciting science demonstrations brought to you by our Science Educators. Be prepared to leave the show feeling energized and ready to learn more!

*Mixology Show

(Recommended for Secondary Level)

Science is not about memorising elements from the textbooks. It is about having fun while learning the art of mixing. In this show, our educators will show you some chemical reactions from fire to mini explosions!

Take Flight 

(Paper Airplane Demo)

See incredible and exciting paper airplanes in action – airplanes that zoom across the room, flap their wings, or return like boomerangs! 

This exciting performance showcases the ‘Wright‘ stuff, from paper airplanes that are functional yet expressive to aesthetically appealing yet playable ones.

This 30-minute performance gives students an introduction to some fantastic flyers in the world of paper airplanes and some insights into how flight performance of paper planes can be enhanced.
