“The Legend of the Golden Piano”
Available through May 2019
Grab your spurs and journey with us to the Wild West, where a legendary bank-robbing outlaw is back in town, about to strike again! After the Sheriff mysteriously vanishes, two young kids saddle up to foil the great heist and put a rotten cowboy back behind bars!
We use awesome science experiments to bring key parts of the story to life. Volunteers from the audience will:
Make the colors of the wild western sunset appear by using special pH indicators.
Create the sound of "fireworks" by setting off a chain of chemical reactions with common household items.
Demonstrate the effects of inertia and gravity on a runaway train.
And much, much more!!
Length: 45 Minutes.
Ages: 4-12. (Younger children are welcomed with adult supervision.)
Size: Maximum 300 people per show.
Next Generation Science Standards: PS1 & 2.
