Age Range

Virtual/Online Wacky Science Show is Crazy! Zany!

More than just whiz, bang, poof and pop, the virtual version of The Wacky Science Show in combination with elements from Supermarket Science, focuses on science with everyday objects and makes the Scientific Method easy to understand! Hard-boiled eggs, applesauce, and a flying clipboard are all a part of the fun of the Virtual Science Show. Students learn that chemical reactions, air pressure, inertia, and potential and kinetic energy make up a big part of our everyday lives. Science is everywhere, even in a place as uninteresting, unexciting and routine as the supermarket!

Lessons include: Physical Sciences, Math, Air Pressure, Safety in the Lab, Bernoulli’s principle, Reactions between Chemicals, and Centripal/Centrifugal forces, kinetic energy, potential energy, inertia, connections in technology, and using chemicals in observations.

This 45-minute elementary and middle school online 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, plus a live Q&A with students. FUN! And it’s Packed with Learning too! Students will find out which everyday household things can be used in some cool science stunts while learning all about the Scientific Method at the same time.

• Zoom preferred, YouTube Live w/o Q&A or pre-recorded also available
• Up to 300 audience members

  • Thank you for the amazing Virtual Science Assembly on Wednesday, November 4, 2020. The students were very engaged and enthusiastic about the experiments you did. The online assembly was a great way to end the virtual school day. Even though we were virtual, you included students in your experiments, kept their attention, and even asked questions, patiently listened also to students that only wanted to make a comment about what they saw. Your patience and upbeat demeanor, especially during distance learning, was well received by all.

  • What a wonderful assembly. Our students were so engaged at the assembly. I was amazed by our TK, K, & 1st graders. I had so much fun just watching them do the experiments along with you. I think my favorite was the math experiment. Just watching them twist their arms was comical and the expressions on their faces. A few families posted pictures of their kids on Facebook doing the experiments. One Kindergartener was doing the ping pong activity with a blow dryer.
    Doug, this assembly was fabulous!!

  • We LOVED this assembly. We appreciate the creative way to provide an amazing assembly virtually. My students are Hybrid, they were watching from the classroom with the event projected on a smart board and some were logged in virtually from home. They are Deaf, we had an interpreter interpreting in the classroom and virtually. The students gasped and yelled and had a great time. They were excited to try some science at home. I have heard from other teachers at BBE that their students (multiple disabled and behavior disabled; in school and virtually) also enjoyed the assembly. It really kept their attention and kept them engaged. Thank you!
