Flux Workshop

Puppetry and Physics Workshops for Teenagers 11 – 16 years

With Smoking Apples Theatre Company

In association with their new show Flux


Come and join award winning theatre company Smoking Apples for an interactive physics workshop, created and delivered in association with the Institute of Physics.

Participants will be able to explore key physics concepts, such as Nuclear Fission, in a fun and creative way (using drama and puppetry skills as tools to unlock this). Participants will also use visual objects and a specially adapted piece of light up set from the show. Participants will be able to visually explore physics theories interactively.


This will be accompanied with a discussion on the role of women in science and ht positive career pathways that can be explored in physics.


Smoking Apples are also performing their show Flux in the evening and if you book a ticket to the evening performance, the workshop place is free! The discount will automatically be applied at the online checkout when the workshop ticket and evening performance ticket are added into the cart together.


Please specify your attendance at the time of booking. Otherwise, please email to book. Spaces are limited!
