Doktor Kaboom!

Grades 1-6

The hilariously charming Doktor Kaboom blends science, comedy, and a German accent in his series of increasingly spectacular demonstrations of the physical sciences. His performance showcases science using humor and incredibly explosive experiments tied directly to curriculum standards.

“I used this to launch
our physical science
unit and it was perfect!”

LBC performance may not include pieces from above video.

Extend your field trip to LBC with Art Talks!

Take your students on a self-guided or docent-led tour of our Sculpture Garden. Thoughtfully restored following the 2017 firestorms, our Sculpture Garden is designed to reflect the local Sonoma County landscape. In the Garden, there are two picnic tables with smaller versions of the sculpture elements that you see in the landscape. If you like, have students find new ways to arrange the colorful pieces. Then please leave what they have made for the next visitors to enjoy.

You can sign up for a free docent-led tour right on your School Show application or contact us by email or phone at 707.800.7504!
