That’s the question that powers the fun at the brilliant Energy Show which will be at Northampton’s Royal and Derngate from April 28-30.
Produced by the Science Museum Live, the show follows the adventures of futuristic students Annabella and Phil as they race against time to complete their presentation on the nine types of energy.
And that means blowing things up.
The safety goggles go on and the students conduct dangerously exciting experiments, such as setting fire to methane-filled soap bubbles or exploding hydrogen-filled balloons.
Mixing live action, computer graphics, science and Star Wars jokes, this is an enormously fun show which teaches some of the key principles of physics and chemistry and will be particularly useful for those studying at key stages two and three.
Be warned though, there are some big bangs in this show. The producers suggest it’s suitable for those aged seven and above.
I watched it with a science-mad four-year-old who was a little worried at some points as the audience shouted for ever bigger explosions.
But he left singing a familiar tune played by “lightning” created by a specially tuned Tesla Coil.
This is an inspirational, high-energy science show which delivers education and entertainment for both children and adults.
The Energy Show will be at Royal and Derngate from the 28th to the 30th of April, with shows as follows: Monday 7pm, Tuesday 11am, Wednesday 1.30pm.Tickets are £16, and available on 01604 624811 or by visiting http://www.royalandderngate.co.uk.
