Q. Do we need one or two
A. If your school has 450 or more students, our
programs are more effective when the school is split in
half. This is particularly true with Mission: Possible
and Science Magic where posters
and experiments are not as visible from long distances.
However, if your budget doesn't allow this, invite the
Q. What do you need for a sound
A. Both Jeff and Rick travel with their
own wireless microphone (and, occasionally, music) to plug into your
school's sound system. Our sound systems use either an XLR and
quarter inch connector, both standard, to plug into your mixer.
If your sound system is broken or finicky, please
let us know in advance so we can bring our own sound system.
(An additional fee may apply; ask your performer.)
Please set up a handheld microphone with a stand.

confirmation letter and invoice once a performance is

presenter. If this is not
possible, purchase orders are also acceptable.
Q. Are there discounts?
A. Yes - Team up with another school for the same
program on the same day, and each school receives a 20%
discount. Multiple shows on the same day are also always
Q. Do you work on stage
or ground level?
A. Stages are fantastic for
assemblies! It is so much easier for students at the back to
see. If they aren't built-in, please provide stairs for the
stage so it is easy for the performer to go into the audience and
bring volunteers up to assist.
Q. I can't believe you're this good. Prove it :-)
Contact us and let us know which program you're interested in.
We'd be happy to provide references of schools we've visited
recently with that program which you are welcome to contact.
Q. I'm seriously interested in a program. How can I share
this with my other assembly decision makers?
You can direct them here, to

nicely and can be distributed at your assembly committee meeting.
