Sciencesplosion™ is a educational outreach science program that merges Mark Nizer’s stage performance with scientific principles and school curriculum.
Mark Nizer: Sciencesplosion™ will teach your teachers and students how to use the Baloney Detection Kit* to teach critical thinking and how science helps us see what is real and what is not.
Mark will demonstrate these principles using juggling skills, some trickery, interactive multi-media and Siri of iPhone fame.
Mark will test your students ability to detect baloney.
Are you PSYCHIC? Is Mark? Is Siri?
Students will be encouraged to "catch" Mark and Siri as they attempt to fool you and your students.
Mark will show you how easy we can be fooled. When you think it is fake it is real and when you think it's real it's fake.
*Based on the book "The Demon Haunted World" by Carl Sagen.

Marks performance was hot! Mark worked the crowd like magic, appealing to the great variety of ages present. His juggling and comedy was flawless. He is one of two performers in our history who has received a standing ovation and we are a tough crowd.
