So much science, so little time. Doktor Kaboom is having trouble picking his favourite science experiments, so he's bringing them all! From optical illusions to chemical reactions, a homemade hovercraft and more! Spin The Wheel of Science and together you'll choose what happens next in the show. Will we turn a water bottle into a rocket or catapult bananas across the stage? Who knows? No two shows will be the same. So, step right up, and let's spin that wheel!
