More than just whiz, bang, poof and pop, The Wacky Science Show puts science in the hands of more than a dozen onstage volunteers. With a focus on science with everyday objects, Dr. Science makes the Scientific Method easy to understand. This is the only show to ever win Dow Chemical's Touch-Tech Award for excellence in hands-on science education!

And while the students cheer the crazy antics, the teachers love these lessons: The Scientific Method | Physical, Mathematical & Life Sciences | Air Pressure | Acid/Base Indicators | Levers & Simple Machines | Everyday Science | Stinky Dinosaurs | Liquids, Solids, Gases | Science Safety | Bernoulli’s Principle | Chemical Reactions. Additional Topics for Middle School: Centripal & Centrifugal Forces | Kinetic & Potential Energy | Inertia | Connections between Science & Technology | Use of Chemicals in Gathering Evidence.

Doug Scheer was very energetic and made learning science fun. He was able to keep all grades K-8 involved and entertained.  Doug did a wonderful job.  Would love to have him back to our school again.

Doug had every, and I mean every, child engaged and concentrating on him. His high energy and entertaining antics kept the children laughing and in anticipation.  I don't think they even knew they were learning about science.  Comments from teachers were:  I have worked here for 14 years and that was the best assembly ever;  Two thumbs up;  Awesome;  Can we have him next year?  These programs were worth the money.  Academic Entertainment was very easy and professional to book through.  A positive first experience for our PTA.

Thank you very much for a wonderful assembly.  I was so impressed with your presentation style and ability to keep all students engaged. The best part was watching one of our vision students howl with delight!! He is usually so quiet and it was a real pleasure to see his delight.

The greatest observation made by my teachers and I was that the children in the audience were learning about Science without even knowing it, because they were having so much fun!

If we could rate it more than 5 we would. He was amazing. The kids have been talking about it for days. He was interesting, entertaining, and high energy. He also made a last minute accommodation for one of our special needs children by not using the microphone since it was having feedback sound.
