They will experiment with floating, sinking, absorption and so much more. 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.

Boyer, Jeff The Science of Magic Performing Arts- Magic,
Performing Arts- Theater,
Science
THE SCIENCE OF MAGIC. Arthur C. Clark once wrote that “sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic” and today we live in the age of technology. We are surrounded by magic. In the first half of this show “Boyer the Magnificent” entertains and amazes us with several classic magic illusions. Objects change colors, light bulbs blaze to life with no apparent power source, and spheres levitate before us. Is this magic? “Professor Boyer” says “No!” In the second half of the show he performs these same feats using the tools of modern technology. Explaining laws of physics as he goes, the professor teaches the audience the principles that make these astounding demonstrations possible. Throughout the show volunteers are brought up on stage to participate in an event that amuses, amazes, educates and entertains.
$351- $500
Stelljes, Eileen Dinosaur Hunters! History,

Are dinosaurs really buried in New York's Central Park? Group activities include assembling a dinosaur bone puzzle, then taking part in a mini-dig to unearth and identify (on field note sheet) your hidden creature. Choose dig options of either dinosaur eggs or figurines. Displaying the library's dinosaur non-fiction books helps with identification.
