Reporting for Duty

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017. 

It’s World War II, and the warship Eva Maria is about to be destroyed by a huge torpedo. Its last hope is extraordinary inventor Hedy Lamarr. And you! Interactive theatre company Produced Moon invite you on an audio adventure based all around the life and times of the woman who invented frequency hopping, a WW2 anti-torpedo technology that went on to give the world everything from Wi-Fi to Bluetooth. Aimed at kids aged 10 and over, all you’ll need are headphones, a smartphone, and your wits about you.
