Mousetrap Machine Science Assembly for Illinois Elementary Schools!

It’s that time of year again – kids have been back at school for about one month, and PTO & PTA parents are looking for quality educational assemblies to bring to their elementary schools for the 2015-2016 school year.

With a degree in geology from Columbia University of New York City, I looked to the sciences when it came time to develop an assembly for elementary schools to compliment our Big Balloon Show.   It didn’t take long for me to realize that balloons could be used to create the very same simple machines – the lever, the wheel, the pulley, the inclined plane and the screw – that students are learning about in the third and fourth grades!

The Mousetrap Machine Science Assembly debuted back in 2007, and now I present the show in over 75 elementary schools in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin every year.


We’re rapidly booking up our available dates for the 2015-2016 school year, so check out to learn more about what PTA / PTO parents, principals and (most importantly) the students are calling the best science assembly ever!
