Sears, Susan Slime and Goo: Polymer Chemistry Science
A hands on science program; What exactly is a polymer? Mix some mystery substances to make 'Slimy matter' and 'Gooey Worms' and/or instant snow. This fun activity uses non-toxic household materials. Older students (middle school) will experiment with different recipes to see how they can change the results whilst younger students (grades 2 - 5) have fun with a simple method of making slime.

Tomecek, Stephen The Science of Sports Literature- Authors,
Performing Arts- Other,
Science
Scientist and award-winning author Steve The Dirtmeister Tomecek takes a slightly serious look at the science behind many of the sports that kids love to play. The program features over a dozen interactive demonstrations which are safe enough for kids to try themselves. We begin with a look at athletes and why reaction time and hand-eye coordination is so important. We then explore the roles played by inertia, leverage, angular momentum, friction and gravity in everything from bowling and basketball to soccer and baseball!

Field, Barb Zany Science with Prof. Womboggle Performing Arts- Clowning,
Science
BJ and Company will custom design the right program for your needs. We have worked extensively with children and families and performed hundreds of shows. SUGGESTED PROGRAM: (other topics are available!!!) Barb will come as Prof. Womboggle. She will do a fun, hands-on science lesson about the most dangerous chemical compound in the world! First we will discuss how one atom of oxygen (a highly combustible element) combines with two atoms of hydrogen (also highly combustible) to create this compound… DON'T let the students know that it’s water! Then we’ll do several experiments together which demonstrate the unique properties of water. The students love learning about science with Prof. Womboggle. www.bjandcompany.com
