Surprising Science - KS1 and KS2
The show is packed with science tricks, stunts and puzzles. Matt challenges the audience to discover the sneaky scientific secrets behind the surprising illusions. This is not just an awe & wonder show but one that encourages scientific enquiry and critical thinking skills. Along the way the audience will be taught a host of science tricks using everyday household objects that they can go away and try later; extending the learning and providing teachers with lots of follow up opportunities. During the show Matt will share his background and love of science.

Superhero science - KS2+
Are superpowers fact, fiction or feasible in the future? Explore invisibility, superstrength, body armour, levitation, mind control and find out what they do (or donít) have to do with real science. And for those superpowers which are scientifically impossible? Thatís where the magic comes in! The show has a strong emphasis on smart materials and technology inspired by biology (e.g. spider webs and camouflage.)

Predicting the future, reading minds, sending secret messages and making objects vanish are easy when youíre a maths magician. Matt's aim is to give his audience tricks they can go away and use to amaze their friends and families. However, in doing so they will be exposed to, and be using, a surprising amount of maths. With shapes, symmetry, patterns and numbers forming the basis of the maths behind the magic.
