A 3+ performer remix of our famous Bash the Trash performance, plus hands-on instrument building, followed by an audience-participatory culminating event. We start with a version of our show that gives the basics of instrument building, as well as driving home the environmental message of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Participants then build a variety of instruments using recycled/reused materials that they bring in themselves, and/or materials provided by Bash the Trash. The event culminates in a joyous music-making event in which the audience members join the band. Depending on your physical space and appropriateness, this final event can take the form of a stage performance, a parade, or something completely different.

The students will be introduced to the basic parts that make up every rocket. The discussion lays the foundation for the 3 parts of flight and the fundamental principles of rocket flight. To both illustrate and entertain, the children will be involved in a fun balloon-rocket race. With the science behind rockets covered, students will witness the preparation of a rocket for flight and will learn basic pre-launch safety procedures. They will then be brought outside to witness the grand finale - the launch of a model rocket from a launch-pad!
