A bit of context here. Some of you may have heard of 'Science Buskers', people who practice and perform Science in roadshows. Well, a teacher at my school set a group up here, the first of it's kind in NZ. Now, I'm a part of it, as the official MC. Last night we had practice, as we have had every Thursday for 3 hours for the past 5 months.

Now, some of you may also know that, over Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, I was presenting at Queenstown Science Week. You may be thinking: But that's not a week straight, you skipped three days!

Well on Monday, TUesday, and Wednesday, I was running a laboratory for Open Door, where primary schoolers come and get taught about cool Science experiments. Less of a roadshow and more of an interactive lesson. As for the last day, that goes to last Thursday, another practice day.

FOr now we have one roadshow, Hot Stuff, which runs for about 45 minutes, but we can condense it into 20 or stretch it to an hour if need be. Last night we started working on another roadshow with forces, electro, magnetic, and gravitational

We have a roadshow "Hot Stuff", about all sorts of experiments, that all get pretty hot. 100C Elephant's Toothpaste, Complete and Incomplete Combustion, and Flaming Colours are a few experiments in the line up. The new one we're working on has yet to have experiments finalized, but we're working on a giant magnet pendulum, and a few other things.

Woah, that's pretty good

Yeah. It's like, an 8 person group. We have some experiments that we don't take on roadshows, but we perform in the school lab, like the Reubens Tube. We have about 4 main presenters, and a few others that help out.
