A Portable Planetarium
Why do we see different stars at different times of the year?
Why might the same star be seen only briefly after sunset or before sunrise at certain times of the year, but all through the night at another time? How big are the stars compared to the Earth and our sun?
Gary Muzio will answer all of these questions when students enter his portable planetarium and explore the night sky as it will appear over their school that very night.
Students will locate the brightest stars and constellations and learn their names, and see a full year of evening sky glide by in a musical interlude.
They will also be introduced to Native American tales, Greek legends and other mythologies associated with the stars. Material is delivered in age-appropriate depth and detail and meets most core curriculum content standards for Earth Science/Astronomy.

The law of gravity says, “Everything that goes up must come down.” But, when things start spinning, everything changes!
Watch and learn as Lisa Lou explores many madcap ways to resist the inimitable force of gravity! See spinning ropes, plates, and amazing feats of balance. Watch balloons, beach balls, and bubbles fly through the air.
Hear music come from wood, metal, and glass. Lisa Lou not only demonstrates and explains centripetal and centrifugal force; balance; air pressure; vacuums; Bernoulli’s effect; sound waves; and a touch of magic, she also teaches students to do much of it themselves!
Students participate and assist with various demonstrations as Lisa demystifies science through theater. Also available in American Sign Language.

|The Gift Inside|
Scot Cannon presents this warm and touching non-denominational holiday show, which teaches that the best gifts we can give are the ones that come from inside us.
Using pantomime and music, Scot tells the story of a boy who could not talk, but has a voice deep inside that would sing. It’s only through performing selfless acts for those in need that he finally finds his voice.
In the second half of the program Scot removes his makeup and talks to the children about the story and what it means.
The Gift Inside is creative and would be a wonderful choice for a holiday program.
