Informative and funny play.
For anyone who wants to prove that learning about Science can be fun.




In this parody of the successful 1980s movie, Marty McFry and Doc Peppermint Brown take the audience back to the past to witness some great scientific breakthroughs. The scientists they visit include: Sir Isaac Newton, Benjamin Franklin, Wilhelm Röntgen, the Wright Brothers and John Logie Baird.

The script includes an option to link part of the assembly to a Year 6 Design and Technology topic.
