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.

1, Mad Science Earthworks Science
Great topic for the 2013 Summer Reading Program - Dig into Reading. Children find out that the earth beneath their feet is more than meets the eye in this introductory program on earth science. They discover what the Earth is composed of and how various forces combine to create rocks and minerals. Kids will uncover the forces that create earthquakes, the natural faults in the Earth's crust and even how mountains are formed. They will see minerals fluoresce before their eyes and create their own sedimentary stacker to take home.

Long Island Science Center, The Place for Learning ECOSYSTEMS - Food Chains & Food Web Nature- Environment,
Science
Using water samples from the Peconic River, students test for turbidity, PH, dissolved oxygen and examine macro-organisms under a magnifying glass. Using their finding students will assess water quality and discuss the negative effect of environmental factors on the river. Students learn about the plants and animals that make up a river and interdependence. Students design food chains and food webs from greater clarity and understanding of the delicate ecosystem. 4th - 8th grade
