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 audience cheers the crazy antics, the staff 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.
Nutty? A lot.
Educational? Yeah, it's that too!
But The Wacky Science Show is also a nationally ranked, no holds barred, laugh riot that makes science easy to understand. More than a dozen kids participate on stage in wacky and off-the-wall, hands-on lessons while discovering that simple household items can be used to perform quirky & crazy science experiments. Loads of surprises, comedy & goofy sound effects combine in this perfect complement to learning The Scientific Method.
The Wacky Science Show is guaranteed to "bring the funny" and be one of the best science shows your campers will ever see!

Awesome job! We had 2 assemblies (grades K-2 and then grades 3-5) and in both age groups the kids were engaged and entertained. His program was educational about the types of sciences and the scientific process. The students enjoyed the experiments and there were lots of laughs!

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!

On the day that you entertained us, we had children ranging in age from pre-school through 6th grade. There was something for everyone. This show was most entertaining and the children loved it.
