Engineering of Life How can engineering help us see inside our bodies, make our lives safer, and push the boundaries of science? This show reveals how engineering improves our quality of life from before birth to long after our death!

Who Wants to Be a Superhero?–a careers-driven show introducing KS2 pupils to a wide range of careers in science and engineering, and showing them that scientists and engineers are… people! Gravity, forces, materials, energy, light, space, the environment and science in society.

Izzy’s Incredible Adventure– an exploration of how transport works for KS1

The XX Factor– discover the ground-breaking work done by six women in STEM through history, and the modern-day scientists they inspired along the way. Maths, music, astronomy, sound… you’ll never look at a gherkin in the same way again!

A Rough Guide to Engineering – this engineering careers guide shows you how engineering has changed our lives and what’s going on in engineering around the globe.

Beyond The Rainbow – a whistle-stop tour of the electromagnetic spectrum, stopping to think on the way about mobile phones, microwaves, suntans, night-vision cameras and your radio. Get to grips with wavelength and frequency.

Exploring Mars – visit the red planet like a real planetary scientist or engineer – the depths of impact craters, the solar system’s largest volcano and the a hunt for water.

It’s Only Water– be prepared to get wet in this quiz-style show.

Bubbles and Balloons – blow them up and burst them, catch them, make them SQUARE. A celebration of all things bubble, states of matter, 2D and 3D shapes.

Schools shows are curriculum-linked; festival shows are designed for a family audience. Shows last 45-60 mins but can adapted to suit your event.

All shows are fully risk assessed and presenters are experienced science-literate role models with LAMBDA-trained public speakers and enhanced DBS checks. Science Made Simple Ltd is covered by £1M Professional Indemnity insurance and £5M Public Liability insurance.

Both the staff and pupils thoroughly enjoyed watching the shows and taking part; it was a very welcome addition to our Science Day which provided an opportunity to present science to the children in an exciting way. Thomas Jolyffe Primary School, Stratford-upon-Avon

Your contribution has drawn extremely positive comments from all sections of the school community – pupils and staff, parents, governors and others. K. Geary, Marlwood School, Bristol

I liked the show because I learnt a lot of new and inspiring things. I was surprised about how much girls were into science. Yr 6 Student

Science Made Simple provided a stimulating, entertaining and challenging kick-start to our action packed Science Week. The shows fully engaged children across KS1 & 2, and the evening show for families was a terrific opportunity to develop parental involvement in school.  Mr Smith, Head Teacher, Grange Park Primary School

Top of the range science presentations: enthusiastic, pacey, articulate, well-informed & flexibly tailored to our audiences, including combining KS2 with KS3. Substantial science content alongside ‘wow’ factor! Mr Cuthbertson, Science Teacher, Ivybridge Community College, Devon

We had around 2,700 visitors. 98% of visitors rated the event as ‘excellent’ or ‘good’.  The session was also named by a number of guests as their ‘highlight’ of the festival. J. Heaton-Marriott, Lancashire Science Festival

This was the best show. Amazing story! Heartfelt, emotional but furthermore very informative and I found a lot out! Visitor, Lancashire Science Festival

Simply brilliant. It made several hundred teenagers quite for a full hour. All you could hear were exclamations of wonder and fascination. Simply brilliant.
