Programming for after-school groups can be difficult, considering that the kids have already been in school all day long. That’s why the Eric Energy show is perfect…it’s full of action and fun, lights and sound, music and humor AND it’s educational. It’s a science show and it’s guaranteed to engage every child in the room. The kids will be participants in experiments and the whole group will be amazed while they also learn valuable facts and concepts related to weather, power, liquids, gasses, energy…and so much more.
There is a student minimum for each class.
Classes can be customized.
All classes are appropriate for grades K-5.
Some classes may include a take home experiment.
Kids will learn about the 3 states of matter, the 4th state and materials that do not qualify. They will see dry ice, learn the safety involved and see several visual experiments. Everyone will participate in a few experiments.
Kids will learn about sound, how it travels and how you hear it. They will see and participate with a voice changer. Everyone will create and take home an experiment.
Kids will learn about light, the different types and how you see it. They will see many different laser lights and learn the safety precautions. Everyone will participate in a laser dance party.
