School Show: Doktor Kaboom
and the Wheel of Science

Doktor Kaboom and the Wheel of Science

Grades 2-6

Doktor Kaboom returns with his unique blend of science, comedy, and a German accent! His series of increasingly spectacular demonstrations showcase the physical sciences and the scientific method. Side-splitting humor combine with audience interaction as awesome experiments are chosen at random from a big spinning wheel including everything from optical illusions, to chemical reactions, to a homemade hovercraft, and more!

“After the performance, I heard one student exclaim, ‘Science is fun!’” – 5th grade teacher, R.L. Stevens Elementary School
