Doktor Kaboom returns to Clowes Hall and is having trouble picking his favorite science demonstrations, so he’s bringing them all! Unfortunately there are way too many to put in one show. The solution: The Wheel of Science! Doktor Kaboom has built a great big spinning wheel labeled with everything from optical illusions to chemical reactions to a homemade hovercraft, and 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, bring your students, step right up, and let’s spin the wheel of science!
