5th Graders at Washington Irving Visit Doktor Kaboom!

For one hour, 5th grade students from Washington Irving were mesmerized by Doktor Kaboom’s comedy science show at SUNY Purchase. Using humor and exciting demonstrations, Doktor Kaboom took the students on an educational tour of the scientific method, chemical reactions, air pressure, simple machines, and illusions of the mind.  There was plenty of audience participation and two of WI’s very own were asked to join Doktor Kaboom on stage. One student was challenged to capture banana pieces flung from a tabletop catapult, and another student experienced the movement of air through the Vortex Generator/Air Cannon. The students thoroughly enjoyed their science experience. Kaboom!
