The wacky and talented Professor Smart and Dr. Knowitall join forces for an educational, entertaining, exciting, and experiential extravaganza. Professor Smart shrinks his head, has toilet paper flying, juggles, and has peoples’ hair standing on end, all while demonstrating principals of physics.

Researcher and comedic sidekick Dr. Knowitall keeps the facts straight. During the Let’s Go Science show students will learn science concepts through impressive and memorable demonstrations. They will learn about air pressure, figure out flight, see awesome optical illusions, be shocked by static electricity, see experiments with falling masses, grasp gyroscopic properties, and get a handle on the scientific method.

Hilarious! It had a great message. Students need to hear that sometimes we fail, but we have to try and try again. I laughed so hard I was practically crying. My students had the same reaction. –

John Henry is an American folklore hero.

Born in poverty in rural West Virginia, his incredible size and strength was legendary as he worked laying track for the railroads in the late nineteenth century. No one could match his skill or endurance, until the
invention of the steam-powered driver. We remember John Henry for his famous contest with this newfangled machine. John won the day, but died soon afterwards of a broken heart.

John Henry realized that ordinary men could not compete with the iron workhorses of the industrial revolution and that the days of men like him were numbered. John Henry uses storytelling, drama, and music to bring the story of an American legend to life. It is a tale that carries a strong contemporary parallel about the importance of our humanity with changing technology.
