Chocolate syrup, baby diapers, and spaghetti probably aren’t the first things you think of when you think about science. But if you’re a student of Supermarket Science, you’ll immediately laugh, recalling the fun science lessons and crazy antics those simple store-bought items can create.
You’ll also recall that hard-boiled eggs, applesauce, and a flying clipboard are all a part of the fun of Supermarket Science, a STEM assembly show that will make elementary and middle school students excited about the wonders of science. Nearly a dozen students participate on stage in this interactive and hysterical science school show, all while learning that chemical reactions, air pressure, inertia, and potential and kinetic energy make up a big part of our everyday lives. Supermarket Science is everywhere, even in a place as uninteresting, unexciting and routine as the supermarket!
This 45-minute elementary and middle school science show is rounded out with incredible stunts, goofy silliness, and even a few magic tricks that keep kids on the edge of their seats. But Supermarket Science is not just a series of super cool science effects with pantry items, it’s also an important introduction to using the tools of observation and testing to find answers. The best part? It’s a perfect complement to your school’s science standards curriculum, so your teachers will LOVE it too! You’ll never see a trip to the grocery store the same way ever again. Laughs, learning, and fun are guaranteed during the Supermarket Science STEM school assembly!

From start to finish, this show had the students on the edges of their seats. Laughing, learning, and totally engaged is how I would describe the students during Doug’s performance. The show was a perfect mix of silliness along with science concepts that our students need to know. All of Doug’s on stage experiments were done with items that could be purchased at any supermarket. I would definitely recommend to other school’s to book the event to for two showings on one day. This enabled the audience size to be smaller and allowed for more students to get to experience the chance of joining Doug on stage to assist. We scheduled this event to be an end of the school year event for our students. It was a great event to have this time of year as the students start to wind down for the summer. Doug, your performance was stellar! You know exactly how to interact with your audience to give everyone a truly memorable experience! I hope we can have you come back next year! If you are thinking about this show for your school, book it now! Your students will thank you!!!

Doug was a wonderful presenter and the content of the assembly was very fitting for Elementary school level. This is the second time Doug has been to our school and he never disappoints. We look forward to having him back.
