Vicki Cobb's SCIENCE SURPRISES is a highly entertaining fast paced, one woman show that is guaranteed to captivate kids and their teachers. She sets the stage with poetry and a short video of her trip to East Africa when she researched her book This Place is Wild. Then she answers the question, Why science, anyhow? by showing how our senses and experiences limit how much we can learn of the universe and that science is a way of getting past our limitations. Instead of showing the audience the world of science, Vicki invites the audience to discover the science in their world. Everyone in the audience experiences illusions and individuals participate in doing irresistible challenges from her best selling books Bet You Can! and Bet You Can't! Most importantly, Vicki's program gets kids excited and enthusiastic about science, reading and poetry and she gives teachers a list of suggestions for follow-up activities

Media- Other,
Science
Did you ever see a UFO? Did the United States Government ever investigate the “flying saucer” phenomenon? What about the rumors about Roswell, or a recovered UFO and alien bodies in 1947? What are the general types of UFOs? Are they all discs? Are there aliens? What do they look like? Can life exist on other planets? This presentation is an attempt to answer some of these questions and perhaps to inform young adults about this popular culture subject. Originally created as part of the Summer Reading Program in 2015, or “Spark and Reaction” at Capital Region libraries, this presentation is intended to inform and entertain teenagers ages 13-18. Teachers or librarians can encourage further critical thinking on the subject and direct young adults to research this highly controversial subject. This presentation can be offered during Halloween, or “scary” Halloween parties or fun activities.
