Green Energy Stadiums

There is a trend across the USA to make the football, baseball, basketball and hockey stadiums more energy self sufficiant.  The Philidalphia Eagles will have the first major stadium where all the energy is generated on site.  They will use a combination of solar, wind, biodisel and low flush toliets.  Read this article.

The Green Getting Excited About Science shows uses only electricity generated by the 300 watt energy bike and solar panels.

Middle School Science Shows

We are happy to perform for many 6th, 7th and 8th grade middle school students each year.  In November and December 2010,  Getting Excited About Science will be at Hadley Jr. High for gifted student programs.

The middle school science programs are geared for the students in an unique way.  The hovercraft was upgraded to hold up to 250 lbs.  This will hold any middle School or Jr. high student and most adults.    The shows also are a bit faster paced and include some demonstrations not suitible for younger audiences like the bed of nails.  In the winter of 2010, we performed for Southwestern Illinois CollegeSouthwest Illinois student at Getting Excited About Sciencein Granite City, IL (About 30 miles from St. Louis, MO.) and gave the students there a interactive science show.  This picture with a happy student Gyroscope made it to the newspaper.
