Lawrence, Ted Dr. Quinton Quark Presents... Flight! Performing Arts- Theater,
Performing Arts- Clowning,
Science
Dr. Quinton Quark Presents.... Flight! Is a spectacular physics program for grades k – 8 which teaches about air, force, gravity, thrust, drag, lift and the difference between things that “fly,” things that “glide,” and things that “float.” Dramatic demonstrations emphasizing audience participation display evacuated cylinders, drag chutes, and full-sized Madgeburg Spheres to teach the principles of air pressure, lighter than air “flight,” Bernoulli, and air foils. For a finale, the audience demonstrates their mastery of the new concepts by explaining to Dr. Quark how they can get a crash test dummy to fly the length of the basketball court. Of course, they also get to try it. Historically, this show is an homage to the Wright Bros. First Flight and the science of physicists preceding them for centuries. Accomplishments of Otto van Guericke, Daniel Bernoulli, and Otto Lillienthal are explored in detail. This show is available year-round, but if you’re looking for a secular assembly for the week before Winter Vacation, this one is great – the anniversary of the Wright Bros. First Flight is December 17, so it’s timely to celebrate this milestone in science and human accomplishment during the month of December.
