Description:
Kaboom! Doktor Kaboom, that is. Actor David Epley’s zany character engages students in a tour of the modern scientific method. Mixing in equal parts of fact and fun, the gifted entertainer from Seattle, Washington, shares his love and knowledge of the subject. Science leaps from the textbook to the stage in a performance that inspires a new attitude and zest for learning. Topics covered include: safety; pressure and force; simple machines; velocity; application of science to everyday life; the scientific method (hypothesis and experimentation); constant discovery of new information and data; definitions; chemical reactions; mass; air pressure; and demonstration versus experimentation.
