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

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.

This subject encompasses the current state of tracking people who are either lost or fugitives. It discusses the many facets of planning and conducting searches and rescues, especially from the point of view of tracking a person who may or may not wish to be found. Given current attention and public interest in an open manhunt incident, this subject is very topical and will explain much to a concerned public as well as law enforcement or others who may become involved in such an investigation in the future.
