Can you really launch marshmallows out of a
vacuum cleaner, make rockets from common
household items, or launch teddy bears using
liquid nitrogen? Prepare yourself for some
seriously mind-bending science, as Dr Graham
explodes his way through the chemistry and
physics of things that go bubble, boom, bang.
With loads of audience involvement, laughs,
exciting experiments, brain-rattling explosions,
and learning, this action-packed show is a
celebration of the fun in science!

Dr Graham Walker has a BSc and a graduate
diploma in Science Communication from the
Australian National University and is one of only
two people in the world with a PhD in Science
Show Performance.

He has worked and consulted for the Australian
Science Festival, Commonwealth Scientific
and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO),
Questacon and Shell Questacon Science Circus,
and tours the globe performing with his social
enterprise Science Show-Offs.

Graham has been performing science shows
for more than 15 years, and his unique brand
of high-energy delivery and amazing science
regularly thrills audiences around the world.

This science show is part of Science Circus Africa,
which aims to bring science and technology to
life for learners, educators and the general public
in Botswana, Malawi, Mauritius, Namibia, South
Africa and Zambia using everyday materials, and
builds capacity in schools and science centres
through training, providing equipment, and
building networks.
