During this festival, your students will engage in a Kaboom! auditorium show; Digital Planet presentations in your school’s media center; in-classroom workshops with a potential focus in the areas of life science, physical science, astronomy, or earth science; and a Family Science Night of your choice. By the end of the day, your students will exude more academic confidence and view science as the key to understanding the world around them.

Engage the entire school in science programming:

  • 2 Kaboom! Auditorium Shows
  • 4 Digital Planet Presentations
  • 4 In-classroom Workshops
  • 1 Family Science Night
  • All activities are aligned with the Florida Sunshine State Standards set in each subject area

Kaboom! Shows

Kaboom! is a dynamic theatrical performance which introduces students to an eclectic array of experiments and demonstrations about physical science. This high-energy demonstration is guaranteed to generate enthusiasm and leave your students wanting more science.

Digital Planet

Make space come alive in your classroom with Digital Planet, our 3D digital video globe. Through a presenter-led planet tour, this classroom educational tool is the perfect way to supplement any astronomy lesson.
