This program generates excitement about science and encourages children to think about how we all use science in our daily lives. Zak sings original songs that are interactive and full of his trademark wit and wordplay. During the assembly, he points out all of the ways he uses science in his show, and students will learn about sound waves, electricity and magnetism. Students will watch Zak change the pitch of a sound wave by simply bending his musical (toothless) saw, and other ways that he uses technology to bring his ideas to life on stage. And as in all Zak Morgan’s shows, children will be encouraged to be kind, curious and confident in this fun and memorable introduction to the science of sound.
Both in-person and virtual (live and pre-recorded) options are available for this program.
