Explore the strange chemistry, materials science, physics and biology lurking in everyday things… this is a show for people who think they hate science.

Join Gastronaut Stefan Gates and his long-suffering daughter Poppy for an unforgettable adventure through strange and wonderful chemistry, biology and physics as they tackle questions such as Why can’t you melt a Flake? What are bogies for? Can you make screaming hot plasma in a microwave?

Full of ridiculous and shocking demos, hacks, myth busting and self-experimentation, this is an action-packed family science show that will light the touchpaper of fascination in anyone.
