Not a talking-head show, stupefying series of fact-then-demos or silly powerpoint slides that rip the heart out of a wonderfully fascinating topic.
This beguiling program hits K-5 graders where they live.
We cover a lot of ground, from snake skins to simple machines, superstitions to Isaac Newton. Each topic builds upon the last until we realize: 1. Science is simply the way we describe why things happen and how stuff works. 2. We don't have to wait to become scientists before we can start enjoying science.
The long-time success of Science Isn't Always Pretty's hinges on 50 minutes of audacious show & tell, outrageous facts, Scatology & more.
We'll meet a famous scientist (Antoine Lavoisier), dissect an owl pellet to see what it ate for lunch, chemically conjure a batch of Slime (solid or liquid?) to see how well it flies, and break the sound barrier with an everyday machine that travels over 900 miles an hour.
Celebrate investigation & out-of-the-box questions in pursuit of a love of science.
science isn't always pretty. ;-}
We book at least 8 programs a year, covering a variety of topics. We have never seen one as original as Keith's programs. He is very good and spoke to the children at their level. They were never bored, and no one fidgeted... BRAVO!"
