The Alphabet of Awesome Science live on stage at the MEC.

The Alphabet of Awesome Science debuted to critical acclaim at the 2019 Adelaide Fringe Festival, winning a Weekly Award for “Best Children’s Event”. A scientific race through the alphabet – where fascinating words inspire spectacular science.

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!

Every show is completely different with audiences determining the order in which the letters are revealed and explored. Plus did we mention the race? The dynamic duo have just 52 minutes to complete their alphabetical, scientific countdown. That’s just two minutes per experiment! Will they make it in time?

Duration: 60 minutes
