What's Wonderstruck All About?
Since 2004 Wonderstruck has been all about inspiring wonder in the world around us. We work with children and adults in formal and informal settings to explore science in a hands-on, creative and spectacular way.

Nothing we do is off the shelf. You won’t find our workshops anywhere else because we make all of our kit in-house. Sure, some of it looks a bit home-made but that’s all part of our ethos. We want people to engage with the stuff we do and then go away and think about how they could do it themselves (just the safe stuff, of course!).

The last 15 years has been a wild ride. We’ve worked in hundreds of schools across the UK with groups from year R to post-16. We’ve run workshops and shows for 10 children and we’ve run them for just under a thousand. We’ve performed shows at the Cheltenham Science Festival, the Abu Dhabi Science Festival, the Bradford Science Festival, the huge Shell Make the Future Live event at the Olympic Park and quite a few others.

We’ve worked with trainee teachers and seasoned professionals to develop demonstration skills (theirs and ours!). In 2015 we were invited to speak to 250 teachers about our work at a conference in Madrid and again in Granada in 2016.

We’ve learned to do some crazy stuff. We can safely explode a car or a shed on stage (take your pick), take a shower in liquid nitrogen, use a 6-foot long jet engine as a hair drier and set off 7 kilos of thermite safely on a school playing field. There's also our burning bed of nails...

What does the future hold? We’re always learning and we’re always developing new ideas so we couldn’t really say. But that’s the way we like it.

Don't forget our YouTube Channel at where we do some of the stuff we probably wouldn't be allowed to do in schools.
