The Alphabet of Awesome Science

• Theatre

Join Professors Lexi Con and Noel Edge (the Word Nerd and the Science Freak) for a thrilling voyage through the alphabet – where fascinating words inspire spectacular science. 
It's a tongue-twisting race from A to Z that's equal parts explosive, messy, hilarious, fascinating and gross. Brace yourself for an hour of carefully crafted alphabetical, scientifical (award-winning!) chaos — that floats, flies, squirts, sprays, ignites and erupts!

That Science Gang creates “Science Theatre” for young people and their families.

We facilitate collaborations between theatre creators and science communicators to produce science-infused productions that better equip audiences to ask BIG questions about the world around them. We seek to inspire audiences to expand their scientific knowledge and literacy, so that they can better engage in important real world conversations.

That Science Gang is presenting two award-winning shows at the 2023 Adelaide Fringe Festival – a thrilling (and explosive!) race through the alphabet in “The Alphabet of Awesome Science” and a vaudeville-inspired journey through the human digestive system in “You Are a Doughnut”.
