Science Travels to You

Assembly Programs

Bring your whole school together to experience a high-energy science adventure! Up to 500 people can gather in your auditorium to watch our superhero scientists, either Captain Current or Ion Jones, adventure through the exciting and sometimes explosive side of science learning. Or, do a deep dive and offer walk-up stations with hands-on science experiments and experiences that your students are sure to remember. Choose assembly, walk-ups, or both for a full day of STEM learning.

Grades K-8 • Up to 500 students in one day
  • Full Day (Assembly & Walk-Up)

ION Jones and the Lost Castle of Chemistry

Introduces students to the basics of chemical reactions and how chemistry impacts industry, the environment, and our everyday lives.

Introduces students to the basics of chemical reactions and how chemistry impacts industry, the environment, and our everyday lives. From a density activity illustrating why objects sink or float, to a chromatography activity allowing to tease apart colors as chemists do in labs, each station reinforces how chemistry impacts industry, the environment, and our everyday lives.
