Debuting to rave reviews as part of the 2019 Adelaide Fringe, The Alphabet of Awesome Science uses BIG words to inspire BIG science – with a performance that’s equal parts explosive, messy, spectacular, hilarious, fascinating and gross.

Professor Lexi Con has curated a collection of her absolutely favourite words – one for every letter of the alphabet. Each word provides Professor Noel Edge with an inspirational jumping off point for 26 quirky, (sometimes explody!) scientific demonstrations.

And if things weren’t exciting enough, every show is different, with audiences determining the order in which the letters are revealed and explored. Plus, did we mention, this is a race? The dynamic duo have just 52 minutes to complete their alphabetical, scientifical countdown. That’s just 2 minutes per experiment!

 

Will they make it in time...?

FAVOURITE WORD:

Petrichor...

A pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather.

FAVOURITE

SCIENCE FACT:

The worlds biggest living organism is a fungus! The 'Humongous Fungus' (as it has been nicknamed) spans 8.9 square kilometres. It takes up so mush-room!

FAVOURITE WORD:

Vellichor...

The wistfulness of a second-hand bookshop.

SCIENCE FACT:

When compared to silence, music tends to  make your heart beat faster. But that's not all!  Music can also ease pain, lower blood pressure and improve your general mood. So, let's sing, play and dance!
