Vicki Cobb's Discovery! Discovery! Why Scientists Love Science is a highly entertaining, interactive show that gets kids excited and enthusiastic about science, reading and poetry. Everyone in the audience experiences how scientists think, the limits of their own perceptions and the engineering of potato chip packaging to keep chips fresh. PLUS YOU GET A FREE COPY OF WE DARE YOU!with your booking.
Vicki begins by sharing a poem she wrote as a child. She explains how she writes about the real world by experiencing it personally as part of her research. She then leads kids through a story of how we know the sun is the center of the solar system, hands-on activities that show the limits of their own senses, and how engineers think about packaging to keep potato chips fresh..
As a result of this program kids will have
*experienced personal limitatations of their senses
*gained an understanding of how science makes discoveries despite the limitations of senses and experiences
*gained a motivation to read Vicki Cobb's wonderful and award-winning science books.
*learn some amazing discoveries about the solar system and potato chips that their parents probably don't know. Very empowering.
Have a book to continue the experience and enlarge upon it.
