Bertles, John Bash the Trash Music,
Nature- Environment,
Science
Bash the Trash is all about science, music and the environment - for over 20 years we’ve been building, performing and educating using instruments made from recycled and reused materials. Our scientist/musicians have invented an entire orchestra of strange instruments, and teach about sustainability and the 3 R’s (Reduce Reuse Recycle). Science can transform even the strangest resources into cool stuff! This program is flexible and can be done in a solo, duo or trio size depending on your projected audience size and budget. We can present for very young audiences (3-6 yrs), school age audiences or family audiences. Optional hands-on instrument-building and parade/jam session available. Excellent connections to summer reading, environmental programs, music and science book programs, as well as occasions such as Earth Day, National Recycling Day, Arbor Day, World Water Day, etc.

Mad Science, Mad Science of Long Island Digging for Dinosaurs (Preschool Workshop) Other,
Science
**Digging for Dinosaurs** Dinosaurs are always a huge hit with children, especially preschoolers. They will be introduced to the differences between meat eating and plant eating animals and will have the opportunity to look at some dinosaur teeth up close. They will also work as paleontologists by participating in a mini dinosaur dig that will engage their attention as well as their scientific skills. 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. The children perform experiments, participate in demonstrations and, for most workshops, there is a take home item for each child at the end of the program.
