October 11, 2011 - Sylvia Bierschenk
Professor Smart and Ms. Knowitall will present the "Let's Go Science Show" at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21, in W.M. Turner Auditorium as part of the SFA College of Fine Arts' Children's Performing Arts Series.
"Our 9:30 a.m. performance has already sold out, but we can still accommodate large and small groups for the 12:30 p.m. show," said Diane Flynn, director of the series. "We encourage patrons to call soon, however, as we expect to sell out the afternoon performance also."
The nationally touring show, starring Professor Smart and Ms. Knowitall, teaches physics concepts through theatrically based experiments and demonstrations.
According to the show's website, audience members "will learn about air pressure, figure out flight, see awesome optical illusions, be shocked by static electricity, see experiments with falling masses, grasp gyroscopic properties and get a handle on the scientific method."
"Our science shows are always immensely popular," said Flynn. "We are pleased to bring a new one to East Texas."
Tickets are $6 for individuals and $5 each for groups of 20 or more.
