Jumping to the sounds of LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" Wednesday afternoon, Carroll Lutheran School students cheered as entertainer Eric Krupkin blew dry-ice fog rings over their heads in the gymnasium.
Krupkin, the headliner of the educational science show "Eric Energy," was very interactive while teaching students about the science of wind, air, light and sound.
"It was so fun. I learned you have to use a lot of air to make something move but it's so easy," said kindergartner Savannah Smith.
Carroll Lutheran administrator Karen Ganjon said Krupkin's show is considered an in-house field trip. The Westminster school Family Partnership Program found Krupkin while searching for new ways to engage students. Ganjon said the school's teachers will follow up on Krupkin's experiments in the classroom.
