|The Science of Sports||
Performing Arts- Other,
Scientist and award-winning author Steve The Dirtmeister Tomecek takes a slightly serious look at the science behind many of the sports that kids love to play. The program features over a dozen interactive demonstrations which are safe enough for kids to try themselves. We begin with a look at athletes and why reaction time and hand-eye coordination is so important. We then explore the roles played by inertia, leverage, angular momentum, friction and gravity in everything from bowling and basketball to soccer and baseball!
|Inventing A Better World||
Literature- Creative Writing,
Science celebrity and award-winning author Steve The Dirtmeister Tomecek takes a wild and wacky look at the history of inventions. Drawing on his book, What a Great Idea, Inventions That Changed the World, Steve engages participants with stories of great inventors and inventions.This high-energy show is especially designed for family audiences and encourages participants to explore their inventive side by challenging them to create and construct some inventions of their own. Beginning with early stone tools, participants discover how simple machines such as the wedge, lever, and inclined plane were used by our ancestors to not only put food on the table, but help them build some extraordinary structures, many of which are still standing today. Traveling through time, we look at how simple advances in building techniques coupled with the wheel and axle helped to propel people forward and make the industrial revolution possible. We conclude with the fascinating story of the development of electricity and how it opened the door for everything from light bulbs and motors to cellphones and lasers. After the presentation Steve will be available to meet and greet audience members and autograph copies of some of his books.
