My friend Bill Bosworth from Science Alliance is retiring due to health concerns. Over the last few weeks I have met with Bill and agreed to perform for most of his outstanding booked shows. We have spoken in detail of both of our shows. We compaired notes on most topics and I look forward to the shows and workshops. Bill is a great man with whom I have always admired over the past 20 years.
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.

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
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.
This week I will be performing near Green Bay WI, South Bend IN, Warrenville, IL and then Mt. Clemens, MI. On June 11, I will be perfoming for 2 schools in Chicago. What a great way to end the year, with an educational science assembly. Summer programs start June 12.
Spring 2013 will mark the 5th straight year Getting Excited About Science will be presenting Forces in Motion at Milne Grove School. The show is about simple machines and laws of motion and features many large scale demonstrations including the rocket car. Way to go Milne Grove (5 years).
