The Inventors Squad

Audio Adventures for Young People & Families

The Lost Program & Reporting for Duty


The Inventors Squad is a new series of audio adventures about fantastic but forgotten inventors. Each adventure in The Inventors Squad series tells the story of a different female scientist, mathematician, engineer or inventor, leading its audience member on a physical journey as they hear about the life, work and legacy of a hero of science.


The first two works in The Inventors Squad are The Lost Program, about the world’s first computer programmer Ada Lovelace, and Reporting for Duty, about inventor and Hollywood star Hedy Lamarr.

The Lost Program and Reporting for Duty were first shown at Innovate Guildford in March, and were recently at Manchester Science Festival in October 2017.  

The shows are for children 10+ and their families.

Our audience members arrive at the Produced Moon control desk where one of our Tech Queens will help them decide which adventure they want to go on first. They then download the app from the App Store or Google Play store onto their phone and are given a set of special Produced Moon headphones. For families adventuring together we have plenty of headphone splitters so everyone can be connected to the same phone!

The adventurers then set off around the venue as the app takes them on an exciting adventure, finding hidden clues around the space and solving tricky puzzles.

You can see documentation from our recent trip to the Museum of Science and Industry for the Manchester Science festival below.
