Curious Investigators

Meet 'Investigator Toni', who's stuck at home with nowhere to go - but is still determined to discover something AMAZING. She needs your help to solve a problem with a home-made marble run. But watch out - there may be a surprising discovery when you do...

To experience the show, you need a laptop, phone or tablet with Zoom enabled; a few bits and pieces from your recycling bin; and a helpful adult.

"My little boy turned to me halfway through and whispered "I love this, thank you" and as soon as the call ended he was planning things to make." Mother of 'Investigator Milo'.
