We offer 5 different shows designed to excite kids to do more science. A) “Much work with Little Effort” teaches a unit about Kinetic Energy, Potential Energy, & Simple Machines B) “Notion of Motion” teaches all about Newton’s Laws of Motion, hypothesis, scientific method, and units C) “Kiddie Chem 101” teaches about solids, liquids, gases & Chemical Reactions D) “Combustion – the Fire Safety Show” teaches the chemistry of combustion and what to do about it in real life situations E) “Flight” teaches how the Wright Brothers combined the scientific discoveries of other scientists during the previous centuries to attain human flight. It’s a unit about the physics of air combined with historical information.
Slapstick Science teaches entire units from a 10th-grade IPS text to elementary school audiences in one short hour. Using spectacular classic demonstrations, real science, humor, and some unique presentation techniques only accessible to a veteran circus performer, Dr. Quark shows his audiences how much FUN it is to do science and inspires them to get back to class. Slapstick Science shows are chock-full of audience participation and laughter, because we all learn better when we’re laughing. Slapstick Science shows are not random principles being demonstrated with the loose description of “science;” all our shows start with a lesson plan and the presentations culminate in the audience demonstrating their mastery of the material by using their newly-learned concepts to synthesize the solution to a science puzzle as the finale of each program. Slapstick Science has been offering spectacular science assemblies to elementary schools since 1992. All shows are written and presented by Ted Lawrence, veteran high-school Physics, AP physics, Chem, AP Chem, and Algebra teacher…. and former Ringling Bros. clown and acrobat. These shows have been seen all over the Northeast, in Singapore, and even Afghanistan! We offer five different science shows; two curriculum-driven shows (Newton’s Laws of Motion and Simple Machines), shows appropriate for family audiences, shows for K – 8th graders, and shows that really get folks excited about Physics and Chemistry, be they students, parents, or teachers! About 30 videos from ranging in length from 60 seconds to 10 minutes can be found at youtube.com/quintonquark
