A scientific race through the alphabet – where fascinating words inspire spectacular science.

Join professors Lexi Con and Noel Edge (the Word Nerd and the Science Freak) for a multi-award winning race through the alphabet — where sesquipedalian words inspire mind-blowing scientific surprises!

It's a tongue-twisting race from A to Z that's equal parts explosive, messy, hilarious, fascinating and gross. Brace yourself for an hour of carefully crafted alphabetical, scientifical (award-winning!) chaos — that floats, flies, squirts, sprays, ignites and erupts!

"A must-see show that sets the standard for educational family entertainment"
— The Advertiser
"It’s a fast-paced, entertaining and eye-opening show that left the kids and I looking at each other in disbelief and clapping with joy after nearly every letter reveal."
— See-Do-Eat-Review
"This is one of the best children’s shows I have seen … keeps everyone from 5 to 105 engaged, learning and laughing."
— Stage Whispers
