Description of programs:
Professor Smart's Fun with Physics Show: "Fun'" is the word most used when it comes to describing the Fun with Physics Show.
Things will be flying! The show is primarily built for kids in k-7th grades but is just as entertaining for adults. For upper grades the show is made more challenging by increasing the vocabulary and asking questions of the students during the show. Even the youngest kids will be engaged by the juggling, the comedic physicality of the performer, and the tempo of the show.
Professor Smart's Fun BIG ENERGY Show: This show is built just for schools k-6. It is loud, uses 20 volunteers and it is a blast! It teaches about all the forms of energy and how we generate electrity. It is offered to schools that have already brought in the Fun with Physics Show and want to bring the complematry show the next year.
