An adventure for 6-10 year olds and their grown-ups.
Inspired by research: children have generally decided by age 10
whether or not they have an aptitude for STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths), and rarely change their minds.
"This show aims to change children’s minds and lives."
Sarah Punshon, Director and Writer
The show was developed with the support of Lancaster University and
UcLan engineering outreach experts, Leeds University's
Women in Engineering Society and two primary schools.
It was commissioned by Lancaster Arts and Hear Me Roar
(Lancaster’s feminist arts festival). It was remounted in co-production with The Dukes Lancaster for a Big Imaginations regional tour in Autumn 2018.
“Bloody brilliant! Everyone at the Citadel is on the same page that it is the best thing we have programmed here in quite some time.”
Fay Lamb, Chief Executive, Citadel Arts Centre
