“You’ll feel great
knowing you have
a top-notch science assembly program that
motivates kids to explore science on their own.”
Science Magicis an
interactive mix of science and magic. Students are exposed to the
characteristics of solids, liquids, and gases. The properties of air pressure,
static electricity, center of mass, and density are visually demonstrated.
The students howl with
laughter when a borrowed dollar bill shrinks to miniature size as Jeff discusses
expansion and contraction. It's the staff's turn to react when a teacher's ring
is "ground to pieces" in a demonstration of a simple electronic circuit gone
wrong. Of course, everything is put back to normal and the helpers return to
their seats as heroes.
Some experiments can be
duplicated at home or in the classroom. This assembly is an ideal lead-in or
culmination to your science fair, or just as a way to show students that
learning can be fun.
“But will my students really
get motivated to learn???”
T. Simmons Elementary in Tumwater, Washington invited me to kick off their
Science Fair with my Science Magic assembly. Principal Chris Sharp
estimates that 50 kids participated last year, but due to my efforts and
motivation, 70 kids were involved this year. That’s a 40% increase!
Their enthusiasm won’t end when the show ends. The
number one concern of many assembly planners is whether a program will have any
lasting effect. That’s where Jeff’s assembly programs will really thrill you.
First, magic captures the students’ interest. Kids love magic so there’s a
built-in fascination that is naturally transferred to the subject of the show.
Susan Peterson, East Port Orchard Elementary
teacher, writes, “I have heard nothing but the highest praise for your
show. We do want to schedule you for next year!” Mary
Nelson, Mark Twain Elementary Principal, adds, " The students were mesmerized by
your artful blend of science and magic."
Then, to keep the fire alive, each of
your teachers receives a “Science Magic Class Activity Sheet” that can be used
in their classrooms. These projects reinforce the concepts taught in the
assembly. The fun questions, facts, and puzzles pick right up where the

Students learn more when they are actively involved than
any other way. The best part is that these Class Activity Sheets are provided
This may be the easiest assembly you’ll host all year. (So easy you may feel guilty about all the
praise you get for putting it together!)
is the smallest of your responsibilities. That’s why Jeff wants to make it as
easy as possible for you to become a
hero to your school. Once the date
is set, your job is done. Within a few days you’ll receive a
letter confirming all the assembly details. Custom posters are mailed to your
school two weeks in advance to build interest in the special program.
The day of the show Jeff arrives a half hour early and set
up his microphone, backdrop, and tables for the performance. You even get a
fun-to-read introduction. Your job will be hassle-free.
Jeff is based in
Olympia and performs for schools throughout Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.
