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!


Created and performed by David Lampard & Emma Bargery. Established in 2002, That Science Gang is dedicated to the creation of unique and innovative science-inspired edutainment experiences that engage, entertain and educate. That Science Gang’s STEAM-focussed programs have been performed for hundreds of thousands of students (and members of the general public) across South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria. These programs – including science shows, workshops, site tours and theatre productions – have been produced in collaboration with and for a wide variety of clients and festivals, including the Adelaide Festival Centre’s Something On Saturday program, the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, SA Water, Country Arts SA, the RiAus, the Adelaide Football Club and National Science Week.
