September through March
Dr. Watts – September and October
The Dr. Watts show introduces students to the excitement and wonder of high-energy physics. Students learn to identify different types of electricity and its applications in the real world. Students create a cloud in a bottle, have a hair-raising experience with a Van de Graaff generator, illuminate light bulbs in their bare hands, and enjoy other electrifying activities that help them discover what electricity is and how it travels.
Standards: PDE Science S4.A.2.1.1, S4.C.2.1.1, S4.C.2.1.2, S4.C.2.1.3, S8.C.2.1.1
SuperCoolness – November through January
See the COOLest show ever as our educators help students have fun with one of the coldest chemicals in the known universe – liquid nitrogen. Where does it come from? What happens to water and other substances when they touch it? Why does it seem to disappear when you pour it out? Students will “ooooh” and “ahhhh” when they learn the answers to these questions and reveal the basic science behind these awesome effects.
Grossology – February and March
Based on the popular children’s book by Sylvia Branzei, this program is all about the impolite science of the human body. While some may think it’s gross, kids love it. This program takes viewers on a tour of the digestive system from beginning to end … No Grossology show would be complete without learning about peristalsis, stomach acid, and, of course, poop! Grossology™ is a registered trademark of Price Stern Sloan, a division of Penguin Group.

Chemical Chaos – April through June
This show gets reactions out of students as educators demonstrate some of the crazy things that can be done with certain chemicals – creating instant smoke, making a giant foamy fountain, growing an extra hand to help clean things up, and unlocking the secrets of color-changing chemistry with a special fireworks demonstration.
