Special Programs and Prices for Public Libraries

Here at Science Plus we really appreciate the work done by public libraries and try to support them in any way we can. To help stimulate a love of science in your community and stretch your programming budget, we offer a number of special programs at discount prices for community libraries in New York and Connecticut. All of these programs can be coupled with a book signing by Steve Tomecek with the net proceeds going to your library!

Each year "The Dirtmeister" creates a fun-filled, interactive program for public libraries that ties directly into the summer reading theme. In recognition of this year's theme of "Imagine Your Story," we are pleased to put imaginations to the test and present "Legendary Myths of Science." Using a variety of wild and wacky science demonstrations, Steve will dig deep into a dozen different science "facts" that in many cases are simply magnificent myths and urban legends. Some of the questions that we'll answer include whether lightning can strike the same place twice, if a penny dropped from the top of the Empire State Building can crack the sidewalk below, whether you can really balance an egg on its end during the equinox, and if it's true that toilets flush backwards in the Southern Hemisphere. Along the way we'll also explore the stories of several legendary scientists, including Isaac Newton, Archimedes, Galileo and Thomas Edison, and learn the truth behind some of their greatest discoveries.

After the program Steve will be available to meet and greet audience members and autograph copies of some of his bestselling books, including What A Great Idea, Simple Attractions, 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 info@dirtmeister.com or call (917) 797-0965.
