THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Library to Host Comedy Science
Issue Date: July 24, 2014
Wausaukee Library will host Jim Lenz 's Comedy Science Show. The event is presented in correlation with the state-wide Summer Reading Program.
Lenz, an international science performer, a professional magician, and recognized Golden Apple Teacher of Distinction, has performed his science shows at places such as the Science Festival in Singapore, Asia, the Einstein Science Expo, the Neville Museum, schools across the Midwest, and on NBC 's America 's Got Talent.
The show incorporates audience participation, comedy, drama, magic, and exciting science demonstrations to pique interest in the sciences, Lenz said. Performing at libraries allows me to share my love for sharing science with people of all ages, and I can help make connections between science and reading for kids.
Jim Lenz 's original interactive Comedy Science Show is sponsored by the Wausaukee Library and the Nicolet Federated Library System. The program will incorporate science demonstrations, including launching vegetables through the air, making hot-air balloons, and even floating an audience member in the air using helium-filled balloons.
Lenz will appear throughout the summer at several area county libraries, including Kewaunee, Brown, Marinette, Shawano and Oconto. For more information on his presentation contact Karen Kortbein at the Wausaukee Library at 715-856-5995.
