WELDEN, CARL Introducing The THEREMIN, the touchless electronic instrument Music,
Performing Arts- Other,
Science
Imagine an instrument that the user plays without touching! As futuristic as it may sound, the Theremin has been around since the 1920’s, its haunting tones have been heard everywhere from Carnegie Hall to science fiction film scores. The Theremin is a simple-looking box with two antennae and unlike conventional instruments, it has no keys, strings, valves or buttons. Its volume and pitch are governed by proximity through an electromagnetic field. The experience is part music, part science and part story-telling. Hear the sound and history behind the first electronic instrument with performance artist Carl Welden, who will give a 'hands-off' demonstration, followed by Q & A. Audience members will then be given a rare opportunity to try this unique instrument for themselves, heralding quirky fun and loads of smiles!

Lawrence, Ted Dr. Quinton Quark Presents... Much Work with Little Effort! (Simple Machines) Performing Arts- Theater,
Performing Arts- Clowning,
Science
Dr. Quinton Quark Presents… Much Work with Little Effort! is the most fun your kids will ever have while learning. Intended to be the first physics lecture our future scientists ever see, this program is designed to inspire and delight and show kids how much FUN physics can be. Presented by the wacky, funny, smart, irrepressible Dr.Quark, this show uses audience participation and oversized props (a ten-foot lever with an adjustable fulcrum a typical kid can use to lift 1000 pounds of volunteers, and a 14-foot tall tripod a typical third-grader can use to hoist a typical principal to the ceiling) to teach them that “with physics, you can do anything.” All experiential, all the time! Each show ends with the audience demonstrating their mastery of Kinetic Energy, Potential Energy, Simple Machines, and Friction by figuring out how to throw a Bozo-Bop doll over Dr. Quark’s head…without ever touching Bozo-Bop! Usually presented to an audience of K – 2 (60 minutes) followed by an audience of 3 – 6 (70 – 75 minutes). Plays big – it's been used for audiences as large as 2000. Written and presented by Ted Lawrence, certified veteran physics teacher and Ringling Bros. clown.
