Slapstick Science

STEM meets vaudeville in Slapstick Science, our most popular school program. This humorous and highly interactive show features scientific concepts brought to life with the talents and skills of three intrepid scientists. They run experiments and test theories involving air pressure, sound waves, aerodynamics, vibration and gyroscopic precession.  With amazing skills, they employ homemade musical instruments, a vacuum cannon, boomerangs, levitating balls, and audience participation. Audiences are energized with giggles, gasps, and a great gusto for the amazing science that is displayed in each and every moment of the show.
