Join Nanogirl (aka Dr Michelle Dickinson), Boris (her trusty lab assistant), and CLAIR (Constantly Learning Artificial Intelligence Repository) for science and engineering as you have never seen them before.

This year’s action packed adventure features rockets, explosions and even a real live tornado – bringing science and engineering to life in the coolest ways possible, right before your eyes.

This international touring science show is suitable for the whole family. This brand new script evolved from the performance at Auckland Arts Festival 2018 features all-new experiments and all-new explosions – all inspired by New Zealand’s own space programme!

There are two performances available at every theatre and also limited VIP Experiences at each show.
