“I loved it!” Review from my 8 year old who saw the show yesterday. A silly science show with lots of fun, facts and take home messages.
A great show for kids 5+ with an interest in science and S.N.O.T!
(I would recommend for children 5+ only because of the scientific content maybe going over their heads and needing a longer attention span to digest it)

SCIENCE! This show was fun, informative, educational and inspiring. Its one of the first shows of the day at the Pleasance Courtyard and was a great start to my day.
Totally recommend and definitely worth taking your kids to!
