The Theory of Experimentivity

As the lights go down for Earth Hour families are invited into The Theory of Experimentivity science lab for a fun, experimental adventure by the zany scientists Professor Squish and Professor Smoosh in search of new original discoveries… little do they know the science lab is not so scientific after all!

The Theory of Experimentivity will be held during Earth Hour lights out 7.30pm to 8.30pm.

Although the show is free, bookings are essential.
