Each year we here at Science Plus, Inc. create a fun-filled interactive program for public libraries that ties directly into the summer reading theme. In recognition of this year's theme of "Space," we are pleased to present Blast Off With Reading! This high-energy show is especially designed for family audiences and traces the history of flight and rockets using a variety of wild and wacky science demonstrations, many of which people can try at home using some "Dirt Cheap" materials As in the past, this program will be presented exclusively by award-winning author and science celebrity Steve "The Dirtmeister" Tomecek.
During the program The Dirtmeister will take a look at early attempts to fly from the work of Leonardo da Vinci to the first Wright flyer. Along the way, we'll explore the science of why hot air balloons float, how Bernoulli's principle gives airplane wings their lift and why rockets can fly when there is no air in space. The program concludes with a blast as we launch one of The Dirtmeister's own homemade rockets! After the program Steve will be available to meet and greet audience members and autograph copies of some of his bestselling books, including Stars, Moon, Wing-It and Dirtmeister's Nitty Gritty Planet Earth.
As in the past we are pleased to offer this program at a special low price of $350.00 which includes all travel expenses within 100 miles of either New York City or Oneonta, New York. (An additional travel fee may apply for libraries located outside these areas.) As an additional incentive, if you have hosted one of our programs at your library in the last two years and want us back, we will be happy to knock an additional $50.00 off the price. At the conclusion of the program Steve would be happy to do a book signing at no extra cost.
Please note that we only have a limited number of program slots available this summer so you should try to book as early as possible! For more information or to book this program please contact us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (917) 797-0965.
