Science and Arts Surprises Literature- Authors,
Multicultural- Other,
Science
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
$1001- $3000
