Side-by-Side Science – Hands-on Virtual Science Assembly

Side-by-Side Science (Hands On!) is a new virtual show created for just for school age kids in the virtual space.

This specially designed virtual show gets students engaged and excited to experience amazing principles of science while they share safe experiments in front of their computers. Exciting experiments from two of our most popular assembly programs, Wacky Science & SuperMarket Science, have become hands-on lessons kids do under the virtual and side-by-side aid of our wacky scientist, Doug Scheer.

It’s easy.
It’s your choice. We can use Zoom or a School-hosted Google Meet. We work together to choose a date and time for the presentation, then your youngsters will follow along as experiments using easy to find items are performed.

Likely, items for the experiments are already available.
A week before the event we will provide you with a list of items needed so your students will be ready to go. These props are commonly found. There is nothing much to purchase and every experiment is chosen for visibility, educational content, ease to follow, and safety.

Here’s a list of some of the items used:
-Styrofoam cups and a dish sponge
-pencils, a plastic bowl & balloons
-coffee mugs and a water bottle
-paper, scissors & a penny
-cooking oil, water and food coloring
-fingernail polish remover
-a straw and a Ping-Pong ball
-string and a coffee cup
-playing cards and tape

This online show is a proven success!

Side-by-Side Science was designed as a hands-on program for virtual learners, or in-person students tuning in from their classrooms. Students get excited about science, particularly when the lessons look like incredible magic tricks. These carefully chosen demonstrations light up the creativity of a child, and they also instill confidence and build self-esteem. Ready to schedule this for your school?
