FREE Science Show!

Some of you may have already seen this on the Coast and Valley Homeschool Newsletter, but it is SO AWESOME that I wanted to post it here too, just in case:

LET’S GO SCIENCE SHOW – May 24th

We currently have some complimentary tickets available for an upcoming science performance at the Bankhead Theater in Livermore, Let’s Go Science, Monday, May 24, at 9:30 am. Please email Nancy Mueller for Study Guides for Grades K-3 and Grades 4-8 or a ticket order form if you are interested in bringing your children. The tickets are available on a first come, first served basis. Please let me know if you have any questions.

LET’S GO SCIENCE
The wacky and talented Professor Smart and Dr. Knowitall join forces for an educational, entertaining, exciting and
experiential extravaganza. Professor Smart shrinks his head, has toilet paper flying, juggles and has peoples’ hair
standing on end all while demonstrating principals of physics. Researcher and comedic sidekick Dr. Knowitall keeps
the facts straight.

During the Let's Go Science Show you and your kids will learn science concepts through impressive and memorable
demonstrations. They will learn about air pressure, figure out flight, see awesome optical illusions, be shocked by
static electricity, see experiments with falling masses, grasp gyroscopic properties and get a handle on the scientific
method.

60 minutes long for families and students K-8 (core audience grades 2-6). Older students grades 7-8 will understand more complicated concepts and younger ones grades K-1 will see it more as a magic show relating to science.

Thank you, Nancy

**While Ms. Mueller only mentions the 9:30 a.m. show, when I emailed to inquire, she said there was also an 11 a.m. show. So if you are going to try to go, ask her if there are still seats available at that later showing, to allow for the drive. Google Maps said it would take about 1 hr and 20 minutes from Aptos to get there. So I have requested free tickets for me and my two older girls, and also for Becky and her two girls. (I will find someone to watch my younger two that day, since I don't think they are old enough to appreciate the show)

And I am going to come up with something we can see on the way home, to make the drive worthwhile! Since we are studying CA history this year, it should not be a problem! : )
