Animal Embassy, . Rainforest Lullaby with Animal Embassy Nature- Animals,
Nature- Environment,
Science
Join Animal Embassy for a night-time voyage through the rainforest. After the sun sets in the rainforest, a new cast of characters arrives. Many animals try to lay low while night-time predators are on the hunt, and a symphony of sounds abounds in the rainforest! The jaguar roars; the owl hoots, the boa constrictor slithers through the trees in search or prey, the tarantula strengthens its web to ensnare many of the insects of the night, the tortoise burrows underground to escape the prowling jaguar, the sugar glider hunts for flies and other small creatures, the walking stick cleverly mimics the branch or plant it sits upon to avoid detection. Animal Embassy will bring the night-time story of the rainforest to life with living examples of its many jungle characters! Meet a Red-foot tortoise, a Pink-toed tarantula, a Boa constrictor, a Sugar glider, and more!

Mad Science, Mad Science of Long Island Color Lab (Preschool Workshop) Other,
Science
** Color Lab ** This workshop will introduce preschoolers to the exciting world of color. They will make a new friend while learning about the colors of the rainbow and will experiment with their creative side during an activity on color mixing. Demostrations will be conducted to introduce students to the primary colors as well as color mixing. 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. The Mad Science mission is to spark the imagination and curiosity of children everywhere by providing them with fun, entertaining, and educational activities which instill a clear understanding of what science really is, and how it affects the world around them.

Science
Programs available include:

PHENOMENAL PHYSICS by Mr. Fish proves that science can be fun by showing students amazing tricks involving bubbles, balloons, bull whips, eggs and a table stacked with glasses.

THE ANTI-GRAVITY SHOW shows that the law of gravity, “everything that goes up must come down,” changes when things start spinning. Audience learns how to do many circus skills including balancing, rope spinning, magic, and more.

THE MAGIC OF CHEMISTRY is performed by both Mr. Fish and Lisa Lou. Magic tricks and circus skills help explain atoms, molecules, the elements, compounds, solutions, magnetism, and static electricity. The performance can also be presented as a dynamic solo show by Lisa Lou.

THE SCIENCE OF MAGIC uses mirrors, magnets, math, air, optical illusions, and more to explore how to use science to perform common magic tricks.

THE AMAZING ACTIVITY ZONE is an interactive workshop, where various stations are set up for children to browse through. Each station has a science-related circus activity.

SUPER CIRCUS STUFF is a PURELY FUN one or two-person circus show with juggling, balancing, plate-spinning, magic, funny stuff, and lots of audience participation. Fun for the whole family!

From fire to Liquid Nitrogen, explore the science of how we stay cool by evaporation. Hammer a nail into solid wood with a banana? Blow up a balloon... from the outside? Explore how matter changes from solid to liquid to gas with liquid nitrogen. At 320 degrees below zero, it's the coolest stuff around! TOPICS: Molecules, Thermal Motion, Heat Transfer, Evaporative Cooling, Air Pressure, Density, Physical Changes. CoolScience is often finished by making giant batches of ice cream with Liquid Nitrogen. Help us bring together fresh cream, milk, flavorings of your choice, and of course, liquid nitrogen to make the freshest homemade ice cream you've ever tasted!

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.
$1001- $3000
1, Mad Science Super Structures Science
Super Structures will give students insight into the world of architects and engineers! The students' first project will be to build card houses in which they will undoubtedly find all stable card houses have something in common - the triangle. Triangles and arches provide the greatest support in construction - facts that children will see for themselves when they experiment with these two shapes and use them to both strengthen and reinforce structures.
