Abstract: This paper describes how a theatrical production was developed with the aim of promoting hands on experiments with 5-8 year old children. The production was about a girl, Fiona, who enjoyed doing experiments. As the story unfolds, the Children are asked to come up on stage and participate in the experiments. Children were eager to participate and enjoyed teh performance. A booklet was also prepared for teachers so that they could also do additional experiments related to the musical when they are back at school. Overall, the performance had a good and effective impact across primary schools in Malta.
