Children putting hoover tubes to their ears. Quote: I didn't like it, I LOVED it." Audience member age 8 Credit: Rachel Bunce

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.
