ARRIVAL

Your Scienceteller will arrive between 30-45 minutes before the scheduled start time. (60 minutes for schools.)
 

SETUP

We can perform in auditoriums and kitchens! We are flexible and will tailor our setup to your specific venue and preferences. For schools and larger events, here is our ideal room setup:

  • Performer on the same level as the audience (i.e. — not on a stage)
  • Performance area of at least 10 feet wide by 10 feet deep
  • Children seated on the floor; chairs for adults in the back or on the sides
  • A center aisle running through the audience 
  • We will put blue painter's tape on the floor to mark the performance area and the aisle
     

Requirements

Here is what we'll need from you:

  • Two four- to six-foot tables
  • A garbage can with a plastic liner
  • An electrical outlet
  • Access to hot — not boiling — tap water from a kitchen or utility sink
     

SHOW TIME

We'll be ready to go by the start time. We are always flexible, but if we have multiple shows that day, delaying the start time more than 10 minutes may not be possible.

Meeting the Audience

We love to meet our audience members! After the show, children and their families are encouraged to come up and say hello, ask questions and tell us their favorite part of the show.
