Book Your EVENT

Professor Whys' Powerful Adventure is packed with original music and engaging science demonstrations designed to help students learn about how electricity is produced for our communities. We'll also look at some cleaner, greener alternatives to traditional ways of producing electricity, such as wind, solar, and even human power!

Mik Jacobs wrote and directs Captain Conservation Saves the Day!, a live show about energy conservation for Grades K-3. Now, he's focusing his theatrical energy and science presentation skills on this original, live 45 minute presentation. Professor Whys is not a video program, lecture or magic show. It's a solid look at science using nationally and internationally recognized science benchmarks for the study of energy. Unique and safe stage demonstrations allow for lots of audience participation and fun while learning. We'll even be generating electricity live on stage!
