Performance
Fire and Ice

SAFE fun with fire and ice! Students will learn about the properties of fire and combustion with a flaming fireball! Then see spectacular demonstrations involving dry ice as we explore this amazing frozen gas. Students will be dazzled with foggy dry ice storms, piezo poppers and special potions as they learn about chemical reactions and the states of matter. 6-10 volunteers will be called and the entire audience will be engaged with our inquiry-based performance.

Special Requirements (Space, Tech, Volunteer):
Access to water, and (depending on group size) stage/performance area/speaker system optional

Maximum Participants: 400

Duration:  60 minutes

Single Performance Fee- $350.00

Performance
Up, Up and Away

This event introduces children to the principles of air and pressure. Student will learn how the weight of our atmosphere pushes down with the force of two elephants! Explore how Bernoulli’s principle creates lift and watch as our vortex generator creates giant smoke rings. Hot air balloons and even a hovercraft will help children understand the power of air. Six to ten volunteers will be called and the entire audience will be engaged with our inquiry-based performance.

Workshop
Mad Science EOG Prep Classes

With Mad Science EOG programs, students’ attention is focused by using visual, tactile, and auditory teaching methods. Choose from different science essential standards for a hands-on, interactive FUN learning experience. Students get creative while establishing links to important content. Choose from the following programs: Exploring Ecosystems (Ecosystems) Wild Weather (Earth Systems) Magnificent Motion (Forces and Motion) Body Works (Living Organisms What’s the Matter (Matter) NRG (Energy) Each program will include creating a take home project that reinforces concepts relating to the class.

Maximum Participants: 30

Duration: 60 minutes

Workshop Fee: $200.00 per class/hr.
*Workshop length/days and number of classes are negotiable

Workshop
Sonic Sound

Merry sounds engage children in experiments and demonstrations showing the properties and transmission of sound waves. Volunteers role-play molecules to demonstrate sound wave motion. Children participate in producing and identifying acoustic sounds from a variety of materials. Electronic distortions link shifting frequencies to voice alterations. Children bring home the Sonic Horn resonance chamber. Students will learn how sound moves in waves, that vibrations cause sound, and that vibrations create different sounds.

Special Requirements: classroom

Maximum Participants: 25

Duration: 60 minutes

Workshop Fee: $150.00 per class/hr.

Workshop
Walloping Weather

Students will conduct experiments to understand how and why weather occurs. They will find out why the seasons change. Children learn that air affects weather. They perform experiments to prove that air has mass and takes up space. Students will recreate the water cycle and mimic a rain cloud. They try out meteorology measurement tools and act like weather reporters. They make and take home a color changing ultraviolet light detector.

Special Requirements: classroom

Maximum Participants: 25

Duration:  60 minutes

Workshop Fee: $150.00 per class/hr.
