“The children were engaged! Both fun and facts were well woven together.”
“Excellent physical comedy!”
“The show moved right along and won the watchers over and by the end of the program he "had them all in the palm of his hand."
“Sequences involving table setting and plates, and involving ping pong balls, were excellent. Using a parent as audience volunteer was inspired.”
“I’ve hosted “Professor Ficklestein” twice now for my library’s summer programming, and I’ve never had so many kids and parents rave to me about a show afterwards. The science concepts are presented in an easy to understand and entertaining way, and the audience was laughing and oohing and ahhing the whole time! – Kristina, Seattle Librarian”
Quirky physicist Professor Phineas T. Ficklestein can’t wait to show off his factory’s wacky experiments, kooky creations and goofy gadgets!
During the course of the show,"The Professor" will demonstrate Isaac Newton's 3 Laws of Motion utilizing physical comedy, mime, music, magic and hilarious sound effects with lots of audience participation!
This presentation is an extremely effective learning tool because it uses interactive and visual concepts to teach key words in Science and Physics and will appeal to a variety of learning styles, including those of the kinesthetic, visual, auditory, and linear learners. Its exciting use of performance and props will help the audience integrate and anchor scientific concepts while being delivered by a children's theater performer with over thirty years of experience.
