Audiences across the UK will be encouraged to join a revolution in invention as part of a tour of live shows presented by electrical engineer, Professor Danielle George, inspired by the  2014 Christmas Lectures 'Sparks will fly: How to hack your home'. 

In a fast-paced and interactive show, Danielle will:

  • inspire audiences to use the sparks of their imagination to change the world
  • be using live demos and experiments
  • explain how to take control of the devices we use every day and adapt and transform them to do extraordinary things. This is tinkering for the 21st century!

Danielle said: “Today’s generation of young people are in a truly unique position. The technology we use and depend on every day is expanding and developing at a phenomenal rate and so our society has never been more equipped to be creative and innovative. I want young people across the country to realise that that they have the power to change the world right from their bedroom, kitchen table or garden shed."
