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!

Superhero Science Assembly Shows with Nanogirl Scientists

Who wants to be a superhero?

Our Superhero Science Assembly show gets noisy—and explosive—as we explore the science behind superpowers and help your students to engineer superpowers of their own. This one-hour, interactive show is ideal for primary school students in Years 1-8. It’s filled with exciting experiments that bring science and engineering to life—from a toilet paper canon to a hoverboard powered by a leaf-blower!

The show’s content is designed to support the NZ School Curriculum at Levels 1-3, and captivates both students and teachers alike though an engaging storyline that incorporates Māori myths and legends.

We’ve been performing Nanogirl Superhero Science Shows in primary schools for over eight years, and in 2021 over 15,000 students in schools around NZ enjoyed our school performances!

Spectacular Experiments with an Engaging Narrative

Science of Fire—Learn about the science of fire through the story of Mahuika and how Maui stole her fire.

Sharp Sticks in Balloons—Experiment with how to push sharp sticks through balloons without them bursting and learn about the science of how things break.

Gravity Experiment—Learn how roller-coasters work, learn about gravity and perform a daring experiment that risks us all getting wet!

Toilet Paper Cannon—Engineer a toilet paper cannon and a leaf blower powered hoverboard, all while learning about the science of flight.


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 and many are keen to attend the November event with their families! Burnside Primary School loved having Nanogirl and I am sure the students will be inspired for years to come!
