A scientific race through the alphabet...
Join professors Lexi Con and Noel Edge (the Word Nerd and the Science Freak) for a thrilling voyage through the alphabet — where great big chewy sesquipedalian words inspire mind-blowing scientific surprises.
Professor Lexi Con has curated a curious collection of her favourite words (one for every letter of the alphabet) with each word providing Professor Noel Edge with an inspirational jumping off point for 26 quirky scientific demonstrations – that squish and squirt, float and fly, erupt and explode.
Together, this dad-joke quipping, prank-pulling pair of polished professors strut their stuff in a performance that’s equal parts explosive, messy, spectacular, hilarious, fascinating and gross.
Brace yourself for an immersive hour of carefully crafted alphabetical, scientifical (award-winning!) chaos!
That Science Gang's The Alphabet of Awesome Science debuted at the 2019 Adelaide Fringe Festival. The show has been touring nationally since 2023, and internationally since 2024.
