Nitro Joe has done it again . . . the kids are still buzzing from last years excitement --- The Southern Illinoisan
This is one of the most entertaining and interactive science shows that you've ever seen! Nitro Joe's energy and enthusiasm will keep audiences of any age fully engaged.
There are currently three different shows to choose from. All of the shows share the following features:
Shows are 45 - 55 minutes in length.
Shows are generally presented to children in grades K through 8th (older children will still enjoy the programs more than they are willing to admit).
Shows require a table, access to electricity, and access to water before and after the presentation.
Most experiments are done in front of the table, there needs to be at least six feet of space between the table and the audience.
Volunteers are frequently asked to assist in experiments.
The maximum audience size for any show is 300 people.
About The Shows
-IT'S A GAS- Children and adults alike will be amazed by the impressive science experiments in this show. Potions will change color, bubbles will flow and creeping fog will cover the floor. Children will be more excited about science than ever.
-AIR IN ACTION- This ephemeral and billowing show allows students to understand just how real air really is. Nitro Joe will use air pressure to crush objects and move things around. Bernoulli's Principle will be demonstrated by making toilet paper fly and by creating Tornado Donuts.
-SCIENCE MYSTERIES REVEALED- The show will help children understand that magic tricks are just unexplained science experiments. Things will appear to disappear right before the children's eyes. Impressive, controlled explosions will dazzle the audience and keep them talking for days.
After managing a franchise science program in St. Louis for almost six years, I decided to go solo and expand science entertainment. Children need to see an exciting demonstration of what can be done if they use their minds and not just their bodies. I started entertaining with science in 1988 while working for the St. Louis Science Center as a teenage volunteer. Over the years, I've performed in over 1700 schools, 300 public libraries, 70 fairs and carnivals.
I have a passion for seeing children learn and achieve. My desire is for all children to find something in my program to help them expand on their dreams. This is not just a science assembly; it's a dramatic display of how education can allow anyone to be successful.
