The Lightbulb Moment

Join us in our Studio show to explore how your curious thoughts and unexpected ideas might just change the world!

Help us explore what’s great about feeling curious! Is everything around us really as it seems, or can we investigate and examine until we start to see things differently? As you ask questions and get new ideas you can discover how seeing things differently allows you to change the world. Will you have a ‘lightbulb moment’?

Explore from light to dark, from tiny things to big bangs, and lots in between. We celebrate unusual ideas and new questions, and our unexpected demonstrations will inspire everyone to think some new thoughts.

Notes about the show:

  • The show lasts for 25 minutes, but the doors stay open so you can leave before the end.
  • There might be unexpected loud noises or things that move quickly as we show you some science demonstrations.
  • You will be part of a big audience. This is exciting, and can be quite noisy if everyone claps or cheers at the same time.
