Current shows include FARTOLOGY: A hilarious journey through the human body packed with physics, chemistry and biology, huge whoopee cushions and the world's loudest fart machine GASTRONAUT EXTREME/SCIENCE YOU CAN EAT: A spectacular show about the science of food, full of edible chemical reactions and vortex canons DOGOLOGY/CATOLOGY Fascinating quirks of canine and feline science with a tame robot SCIENCE OF SWEETS: A demo-packed adventure into the science of sweets, snacks, and gum
Dinosaurs are a fascination and an inspiration for children. Our hands-on, interactive workshops feature genuine and replica fossils from our museum in Hull. The artefacts include teeth, claws, even a genuine dinosaur egg! Highlight of the presentation is a full size replica Allosaur skull (sharp, scary teeth!) Children are told the exciting stories of the fossils then have the chance to touch and handle the artefacts.
Health and Safety advice for science festivals, high-profile stage shows and demonstrations, including reviewing risk assessments. I’ve won repeated commissions for my proactive approach at bridging the gap between what a performer wants to do and legal H&S obligations. My risk assessments and H&S processes are trusted as being thorough by both my firework and science communication colleagues. Previous clients include Cheltenham Festivals and Greg Foot.
THE FX FACTOR: Flames, smoke and pyro are used on TV, in films and on stage to add explosive atmosphere, but how do scientists go about making these effects? Join Matthew Tosh to find out and explore the amazing world of live special effects. Learn how to make a controlled column of fire or ankle hugging fogs without choking the audience and much more. Packed with demos, freezing jets, bubbling flasks, smoke and one or two explosions, this is the very serious science behind stage effects.

Featured at the The London Science Museum, The Cheltenham Science Festival, British Science Week, Forum Départemental des Sciences (Lille), and many schools 'The Brain Game' is a flexible set of fun activities that can be reconfigured for a wide range of participants. It gets people to pass messages around in a way that shows how brain cells work; it recruits the audience to play the part of axons; and it is a very exciting game! https://sites.google.com/site/mcoath/projects/the-brain-game
The workshop 'The Power and Limits of Science' started as a research project (Christchurch College Canterbury, LASAR project) and it is designed to encourage students to think about the sorts of questions which can, and cannot be fully addressed using purely scientific arguments. https://sites.google.com/site/mcoath/projects/pls
Developed for hands-on activities in small groups 'Supermarket Scientist' shows that almost anything that can be bought in a supermarket can be used to do science. Everything is 100% repeatable with everyday items (and a bit of adult supervision), no cheating by bringing along liquid nitrogen, or any such exotic stuff! https://sites.google.com/site/mcoath/projects/the-supermarket-scientist
Anyone for lively, practical science? Our range of primary and secondary workshops focus on chemistry/materials and physical properties and are directly linked to the national curriculum. In our inspiring sessions pupils discuss, investigate and think scientifically. Early Years to Key Stage 4, anywhere. www.spherescience.co.uk
Anyone for a lively, inspiring show? This exciting show comprises a series of “science tricks” with unexpected and surprising outcomes, challenging the audience to think through, with the help of the presenter, how each one works. People watch, think, discuss and remember. Early Years to Key Stage 3 and families, anywhere. www.spherescience.co.uk
Our hands-on, practical primary INSET days support the teaching of science enquiry and investigative skills. We aim to increase staff confidence in structuring investigations for themselves and in encouraging pupils to ask questions and look for answers. We design the day to meet the needs of each school's curriculum, focussing activities on materials and their properties and physical processes. Shorter courses are negotiable. www.spherescience.co.uk
