Science in Schools
Assembly Shows

Interactive and impactful in-school live science performances, delivered by expert science communicators.

What Teachers are Saying

“Thank you so much for coming to our school. Our students LOVED it. We (teachers) liked how you talked about what a Scientist does/thinks/says and how you linked the Science to superhero powers as you conducted the experiments. This was a great way to kick-off our term of pure Science learning.”

“The children really enjoyed themselves—my own daughter was in the crowd and spent the weekend telling us she wants to be a scientist just like Nanogirl when she grows up. Success!

“Thank you Nanogirl for organising this amazing event! I have had great feedback from students! Burnside Primary School loved having Nanogirl and I am sure the students will be inspired for years to come!”

The Air We Share

During our lives we will take in around a billion breaths of air, but what is in our air and how can we change it’s composition? This interactive assembly helps students visualise concepts that are too small to see with the naked eye and understand how they can help shape and change the environment around them.

Real Scientists & Engineers

Our presenters are genuine scientists trained to deliver entertaining and educational experiences 


Our Science Assembly shows are fun, educational and filled with explosive and exciting experiments that will amaze students and teachers alike! Each presenter is police vetted and trained by the same team who created our smash-hit international, live theatre shows.

Each of our shows explores the science behind concepts tied to the New Zealand curriculum and helps your students see themselves as scientists and engineers. Our shows are ideal for primary and intermediate school students and the content is designed to support the NZ School Curriculum at Levels 1-3.

Building Teacher Confidence


While we take great pleasure in captivating students with our dynamic assembly shows, we also know the importance of equipping teachers to build on the content that we present. To support this, each of our assembly shows is accompanied by comprehensive before- and after-the-show documents to help teachers prepare students for the scientific concepts introduced during the show and reinforcing those concepts afterward. 

In conjunction with our free teacher resources and online science videos, we offer a multifaceted approach to connect students with science in exciting and varied ways. By utilizing these resources, we aim to make the learning journey not only educational but also enjoyable for students.
