Back to School Shows end busy Summer of shows

This summer Getting Excited About Science was performed at camps, libraries, park districts, and head lined many festivals.   Some groups had hands on workshops, many shows were outside and we had lots of fun across Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana.

Cicero, IL had the show to kick off Back to School week.   I will be perofming a show on the night of the solar eclispe and plan to set up my telescope with solar filter.

Early in September, school shows start with a pair of show near Detroit, Michigan.  School assembly showcases start in early September.

Call early for best dates.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Very Busy 2016 Summer

Summer of 2016 had public shows in Michigan, Indiana and Illinois.  The shows were at libraries, schools, park districts, entertainment series, and festivals.

It is always great fun to perform for these groups.   The families come out for fun.   The show is fast moving fun and teaches science. It is great when both adults and children come up and tell me how much they learned (and laughed).science-poster

Simple Machines Science and Inventions

Palatine, Illinois school saw how simple machines are used in everyday life along with some large scale examples.  The show featured a tug of war where 1 girl beat 4 boys, a 6′ Chicago Style Draw bridge, Giant Screw, shot put pendulum, wheels and a rocket car.   This is the 6th time I have performed for this school.

School Field Trips, Spooky Science and STEM

This October there have been the school assembly science shows, but new this year is a series of shows for the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago for school field trips.  This is a beautiful stage and historic building.   Shows are October 21 and 27.   October 21 is already sold out at the time of this post.   Here is a link    https://www.oldtownschool.org/concerts/2015/10-21-2015-FT-Getting%20Excited%20About%20Science-1030am/

Toward the end of October there are many park district and school Spooky Science shows including shows in Palos Heights, Minooka, Riverside, West Chicago and North Riverside.

Earlier in October Getting Excited About Science was featured at Prairie State College STEM day.  It was great fun and great enthusiasm with the students.  https://www.facebook.com/GetScience/posts/1060898057288371 Here is a link to the STEM program

Busy Summer leading into Busy September

This summer I have performed for camps and scout groups.   Several camps had Getting Excited About Science for each session.   There were also large public shows at festivals, fairs and libraries.   Lost of traveling through Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan.   This summer also marked a mini tour of Chicago Public Libraries performing an Astronomy and Space show.

This September will have hands on science workshops and STEAM programs at several Illinois Libraries.   In addition, I will be at two School Assembly Showcases.    Book your school assembly early to ensure the best dates.
