Madcap Science
Audiences of all ages are entertained with demonstrations of Atmospheric Pressure (driving a ping-pong ball through plywood), the Grip of Friction (pulling a cloth from beneath a seated student), Chemical Reactions (elephant's toothpaste), Indoor Rocketry (balloon powered) and much more. Professor Hughson’s wacky humor and audience participation keeps kids enthralled as he teaches the basics of the scientific process; questioning, hypothesis and experimentation.
