Join us on an adventure about Professor Noble and the Science Heroes, who embark on a treasure-hunting quest deep within an ancient temple! Can they solve the puzzles, escape the traps, and return with the treasure before time runs out?! The audience helps the performer act out the tale, as we use the events in the story to discover and explore several exciting science concepts — like air pressure, the transfer of energy, physical and chemical changes, and more! Volunteers help conduct each experiment as the whole audience gets involved in changing variables and making predictions! We’ll even bring some experiments out into the crowd for all to see! All ages!
