List of Shows...- Because some schools host a Mr. Science Show each week throughout the school year, there are currently over 50 different Mr. Science Show titles! (Most shows are listed here but not all.)

-Got Ideas? Some of the most popular programs were custom designed to enhance a theme at a school, a library, or a special event.

-Hats off to the inspirational minds of Mrs. Bush at Meadowlane Elementary (she inspired my flame throwing volcano and my tornado machine), Rosa Reich at the DeGroodt Library in Palm Bay (she's behind the ideas for FUTUREWORLD and VOYAGE TO THE PLANET BALLOONO), and a special thanks to Leah Solter (she prompted me to build a fully functional shoulder mounted rocket launcher for her son Johns' birthday because (he'd already seen most of my equipment at Lockmar Elementary so we needed a surprise for him.)
