Doktor Kaboom and The Wheel of Science

February 13 - 27, 2022

Available February 13 – February 27

Recommended age group: 2nd Grade+

So much science, so little time. . .
Doktor Kaboom is having trouble picking his favorite science demonstrations, so he’s bringing them all! Unfortunately, there are way too many to do them all in one show.

The solution: The Wheel of Science!

Doktor Kaboom has built a great big spinning wheel and labeled it with everything from optical illusions to chemical reactions to a homemade hovercraft, and more! At least a dozen fantastic demonstrations ready to go. Wherever the wheel stops, that’s what’s next! Will we turn a water bottle into a rocket or catapult bananas across the stage? Electrocute a pickle or create artificial gravity? Who knows? No two shows will be the same.

So, step right up, and let’s spin that wheel!
