Getting Excited About Science

Science Assemblies for Elementary and Middle School Audiences.

Getting Excited About Science is a school science assembly program that lives up to its name. This is a science assembly with "wow" factor. Hovercrafts, exploding balloons, and a human gyroscope are just a few of the amazing demonstrations used to help kids discover the science in the world around them. It is the perfect blend of teaching and entertainment.

The presenter skillfully combines his university science degree with his skills as an entertainer to present a general science show that captivates students of all grade levels.

Steve and the Getting Excited About Science program has been recognized by professional teaching organizations, the Chicago Tribune and WGN TV as being at the top of the field in science assemblies.

This is a elementary and middle school science show that everyone can not only see, but understand and enjoy. The aim of Steve’s show is to inspire students to get involved in science themselves. Using dramatic demonstrations, easy to see equipment, humor, music, and audience participation, he brings basic scientific ideas down to earth.

The Getting Excited About Science Program covers basic concepts of air/water pressure, magnetism & electricity, friction, chemistry, simple machines, conservation of energy, sound, color and temperature-molecule reactions. In addition to his general science show, Steve also offers specific science programs that are designed to coordinate with curriculum (see below).

All shows are designed to be age/ grade level appropriate, with programs available for both elementary and middle school audiences. A teacher's guide and follow-up notes are also available upon request.

Teachers, PTA parents, educators, and reporters across the midwest have given this science assembly program an "A+". Here are only a FEW of the recent positive reviews and recommendations for Getting Excited About Science :

“The performance was accompanied by chorus of 'oohs and ahhs' and an occasional 'awesome' ”
- Chicago Tribune, Chicago, Illinois

“Your science program was fast paced, but allowed students to understand the concepts at their own grade level. The large, easily seen props that you used made it easy for everyone to see well. I knew it was a successful assembly, not only because the teachers told me how much they liked it, but so did many students”
- Lou Havlick, Principal, Levi Leonard Elementary - Evansville, Wisconsin

“ On behalf of Mill Creek Elementary School, we'd like to thank you for the fun yet educational presentation today. A lot of what you discussed coincided with what many classrooms were directly learning in their Science classes right now!

I liked how you were able to make your presentation work for not only the younger audience members but also increase the information for the older kids. You kept the kids entertained and interested for the entire presentation and that's really hard to do! Thanks again for your time and positive energy!”
- Melanie Gayton, Co-Assemblies Coordinator, Mill Creek Elementary School

Midwest School Assembly Presenters gives you the most science shows to choose from...

Midwest School Shows has a wide selection of school assemblies that cover the topic of science, including:

The school assemblies that we offer to Michigan, Ohio, and Illinois schools covers a wide range of topics from math/ saving money and reading to social studies and geography. Of course, our professional school entertainers also have shows where the main goal is just to have "good, clean, fun". PTA groups book these fun magic shows and musical concerts for family nights, field day events, and end of the year parties. They are also good for chasing away the winter blues in January and Februrary when Michigan and Ohio students are often stuck indoors.

PTA / PTO Money Saving Reminder: Your school can save money by teaming up with another school in your district to book the same school assembly on the same day.
