Getting Excited Science was the featured show last Friday at the University of Wisconsin Superior. What a great time performing for professors, students and famlies.
Last Saturday marked the 1st of two shows at the resort in Gurnee, IL. This is great fun to perform for families enjoying a nice “Holiday” weekend. The show was full.
Friday will a busy day with multiple school shows with 2 elementary school shows and 1 middle school show. I will be rushing around, but have a big thank you for all the schools involved to make this schedule work.
This weekend I will be performing science demonstartions on WCIU as part of a late night comedy, variety show. http://sgstarmakers.com/
The summer of 2015 is booking up with astronomy shows booked by the Chicago Public Libraries and other science shows booked by camps, libraries and more.
I just received this e-mail tonight. I was at Mill Creek School this morning.
This first week of January, 2015 has a gifted 5th grade science workshop. This marks the 7th year in a row I have been at this school and the secretary and a handful of teachers know me. Always a pleasure to see the “light” go on in students when the discover how an electric motor works.
Later this week I will be performing 2 assemblies to kick off the Science Fair at a school. Students will get their science fair packet at the end of the school day and will be encouraged to participate in the science fair. I also love to see the enthusiam of the students who are eager to get started.
I used to own a big and heavy 10″ relfecting telescope that was 4′ long mounted on a heavy EQ mount. I used to love to bring it with me when I visited my parents house outside Cincinnati. On one visit my dad told me he and a neighbor where keeping notes on sunrises and sunsets. Today, January 4 has the latest sunrise of the year. A few years later my mom and dad took an astronomy class design for seniors in Arizona (my dad was 84 at the time). This is his chart.
Thursday, I will be in Spencer, Wisconsin conducting a hands on workshop. I always love working with the scouts. They contacted me way back in the summer, just to plan this event. The scouts love to learn – and can earn merit badges. It is a win for everyone.
I recently performed a series of shows at the world famous Museum of Science and Industry along lake Michigan in Chicago. A few years ago Getting Excited About Science also teamed up with MSI for a summer long festival called Science Chicago.
