Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Science
Fasten your seatbelts and prepare for a wild ride through the world of sound with Story Laurie. In her inimitable style, Laurie will take your audience on a wacky adventure, exploring topics such as the mechanics of sound, onomatopoeia (Fizz! Boom! Baa!) and other wonders. We’ll visit the Museum of Aural Anachronisms, with its permanent exhibit on typewriters, rotary dial telephones and vinyl records. And we’ll even travel to France, where turkeys say “glou, glou, glou” and dogs say “ouah, ouah!” Yes, folks, through story, song, improv aplenty and tons of fun audience participation, you can’t ask for a more engaging, high energy show for your SRP audience. Bring Story Laurie to your public library, and you, too, will learn why she was voted 2013 “Best Children’s Performer” by Hudson Valley Magazine.

Cobb, Vicki Science and Arts Surprises Literature- Authors,
Multicultural- Other,
Science
Vicki Cobb's SCIENCE SURPRISES is a highly entertaining fast paced, one woman show that is guaranteed to captivate kids and their teachers. She sets the stage with poetry and a short video of her trip to East Africa when she researched her book This Place is Wild. Then she answers the question, Why science, anyhow? by showing how our senses and experiences limit how much we can learn of the universe and that science is a way of getting past our limitations. Instead of showing the audience the world of science, Vicki invites the audience to discover the science in their world. Everyone in the audience experiences illusions and individuals participate in doing irresistible challenges from her best selling books Bet You Can! and Bet You Can't! Most importantly, Vicki's program gets kids excited and enthusiastic about science, reading and poetry and she gives teachers a list of suggestions for follow-up activities

They will also have the opportunity to learn about the everyday materials that make a variety of special effects noises in the movies and will watch, and hear, a bee buzz above their heads. These are programs specifically designed for children ages 3 and 4, and take place at your location. Our only requirements are: a room that can be darkened if needed, with tables and chairs where the children can work comfortably; a small table to set up our equipment and access to water and electricity.
