Science Magic: Play with Your Food - 3*** - One4Review
one4review | On 20, Aug 2019
This is a very popular show and the queue starts early, so it’s well worth getting there in good time, as this is a chaotic, dramatic show children and adults alike can enjoy.
Performer / Scientist Donal Vaughan introduces the ground rules for safe science, and then we’re off. From exploding cola to commanding a ketchup packet, to potato-based weaponry, there are some fun bits of science in this show.
There’s plenty to enjoy in the show – water balloons, stabbing bags of apple juice (or maybe something worse!) over a child volunteer, to conjuring up – and burning off ‘Dragon’s Breath’.
It is a little disappointing, for those who saw last year’s show, that this appears to be the exact same show. We had hoped that the new subtitle “Play with Your Food” meant new science tricks, fresh ideas, and possibly more interaction from the children. It’s still a good show, but if you saw it last year, there’s not much changed.
