How To Build A Racing Car With Fran Scott

Buckle up and charge your batteries! We’re going full throttle into the science behind racing cars in this family stage show with TV engineer and pyrotechnician, Fran Scott – exploring the processes, shape, and materials that make them such a feat of engineering.

You’ll get the chance to help Fran decide how to create the perfect eco-racing car, with plenty of amazing demonstrations (and an awful lot of mess) along the way!

Fran has been presenting engineering on TV for years – from CBBC’s Absolute Genius with Dick and Dom to Channel 4’s Lego Masters – and is an experienced prop maker and demo developer, including for the Ri’s Christmas Lectures.
