Books are amazing thing!  Let Waldo share with your group his love of books as he teaches them some of the incredible things he has learned from reading, such as the history of clowns & clowning, how to juggle, how to sculpt a balloon & how to amaze others with magic.


cat friends

Everybody wants friends.  But if we expect to keep our friends, then there are certain jobs that we have to do.  A real friend shows respect.  A real friend forgives their friends when they get mad at them.  A real friend always keeps his promises.  In this program, Waldo teaches what friendship is all about & how to keep the friends we have.

Real Love

Real love (the kind that lasts) has nothing to do with feelings.  It has everything to do with our actions toward others (especially people we don't like).  In this program, Waldo will be talking about what real love is all about, what it involves & how to demonstrate it to others.

You Are Special!


A great self-esteem program centered around the idea that our value comes from the inside, not what we have or what we do or what we look like.  Let Waldo remind your group how important they are in ways they will never forget.

Be All That You Can Be


Every one of us has the power to be great!  Things like drugs, peer-pressure, circumstances, discouragement & doubt can keep us from that greatness.  Let Waldo encourage & show your group the importance of school & how how they can be their best by rising above what life throws at them.

Professor Steve's Outta Sight Light Show

Laser Show

Hey!  Let's give it up for light!  Wonderful stuff.  It provides warmth, allows us to see, makes it possible for plants to grow, & contributes to our happiness (lack of natural light can lead to depression), to name just a few things.  In this program, Professor Steve explores the world of light, rainbows, prisms & lasers, all combined with music, resulting in one truly awesome & exciting program.  Thirteen different lasers, five different lighting effects, fog machines & the dreaded disco ball.  Outta Sight!

Professor Steve's Unseen Forces Show

animal magnetism

Unseen forces are a good thing.  They keep us & our friends from being thrown off the earth's surface (remember we are on a ball that is spinning at about 1040 miles per hour, & moving around the sun at about 18.5 miles per second).  They also keep us from exploding (messy) or even imploding (equally messy).   In this program, Professor Steve deals with the unseen forces that control us & the world around us such as air pressure, gravity, inertia & centripetal force.  Feel the power of Professor Steve as he, among other things, pulls a tablecloth from a set table without disturbing the plates & cups & performs his famous "Flying Toilet Paper".  Unseen Forces!  You have felt their power--now learn what they are all about.

Professor Steve's Wild Water & Fantastic Fire Show

fire water

Get ready for one of the hottest shows you have ever seen!  In this program, Professor Steve will examine & demonstrate the different properties of water, ice, steam & fire.  See the amazing power of snow!  Watch a real steam engine run!  Witness the explosive power of the "alcohol bottle".  Learn how to protect yourself from the effects of fire.  These & many other awesome experiments will be presented, so don't miss out.  Be there when Professor Steve shows you just how amazing water & fire can be.

Professor Steve's Crazy Kitchen Laboratory Show

Step right up!  You've been to the circus, tasted the food, smelled the smells & marveled at the tightrope walkers, the trapeze artists, the jugglers & the man shot from the cannon, to name just a few.   Now get ready to learn how science allows it all to happen.   In this program, Professor Steve takes your group into the world of the big top & explains it all from a scientific standpoint.  Come one, come all, as Professor Steve dazzles your group with amazing demonstrations of juggling, cotton candy making, tightrope walking &, last but not least, the dreaded stool of nails!

Professor Steve's Amazing Air Show


Air.  You can't see it, but you know it's there.  It keeps us alive.  It controls the weather.  It holds everything in this world together with its' power.  And it makes for some really cool toys!  In this program, Professor Steve teaches some of the scientific principals of air & air pressure.   Your group will have a great time learning about air, & at the same time learn about the mysteries of the toys they play with every day.  Great for all ages, especially younger kids.

Professor Steve's Science of Superman Show

Professor Steve's Optical Illusion Show

optical illusion

It has been said that "seeing is believing".  Actually, that statement is incorrect.  Because of the way our eyes & brain are made & constructed, we can't always trust our eyes.  The world is full of things that are not what they seem.  That is what this show is all about.  In this program, Professor Steve combines his favorite optical illusions with some of his favorite magic tricks.  The result is a very fun & interactive way of learning about how & why optical illusions work.  You will rub your eyes in disbelief as you witness an audience member getting a sword pushed through their head, Professor Steve's head inflating & deflating like a balloon & other seemingly impossible sights.  Seeing is not always believing!

Professor Steve's Fantastic Reactions Show

Professor Steve's SPOOKY SCIENCE Show
(science of halloween)

Halloween Science

A fun show with a spooky theme that works all year round (not just limited to Halloween).  In this program, Professor Steve's will demonstrate & teach your group amazing science, all wrapped around the world of skeletons, laboratories & monster movies.  Witness the high-tech way of launching toilet paper, not with your arm, but with a leaf blower.  Discover the principles of gravity as we drop candy filled trick-or-treat bags.  Learn the history of Frankenstein as we produce 500,000 volts of electricity from a Tesla Coil.  These & other amazing science experiments await.  Great for all ages!       

Professor Steve's Super Sweet Soda Pop Show

Mentos Fountain

We love our soda pop!  The average American drinks over 50 gallons (577 cans) of soda a year.  That means that we are consuming over 50 pounds of sugar a year, which in turn produces about 25 pounds of weight gain each year.  Soft drinks are a big part of our lives & our diets, so lets embrace them & learn about science from them.  In this program, Professor Steve uses full cans, empty cans, & the liquid contained within the cans, to learn about air pressure, our health, burping, buoyancy & reactions.  Drink in amazing demonstrations such as the "Incredible Can Crush" & the Magnificent "Mentos Fountain".  Cheers!

Professor Steve's Super Sonic Sound Show

glass shatter

Our sense of hearing is one of the most important senses we possess.  We rely on our ears every moment of every day to help keep us safe, for communicating with others & for the enjoyment of things like music, movies & television.  But our sense of hearing is also the most delicate of the senses.  We can do irreparable harm to our ears if we aren't careful (watch those iPod volume settings!).  In this program, Professor Steve establishes the fact that "sound = vibration" (both at the point of origin & then in our heads), then proceeds to cause a multitude of things to vibrate & bring forth sound.  Put your fingers in your ears as we fill the air with sounds from vibrating glasses, metal rods, guitar strings, steel pipes, etc, & then push sound to the max as we shatter a wine glass.  You heard me!

Professor Steve's Reasons to Say No Show

smoking download.gif (11747 bytes)

Our bodies are amazing things!  Treat them right & put good things into them, they work like finely tuned machines.  Mistreat them & put garbage into them, they begin to break down.  In this program, Professor Steve explores & demonstrates what things like smoking, drinking, drugs & junk food do to our bodies.  Your kids will not just hear about the dangers & effects of harmful substances--they will actually see the gross results.  This program works great with all age groups, even Kindergarten & elementary age youth.  Especially great for Red Ribbon Week activities.

"My name is Michelle Woodward and I am the elected prosecutor in Lawrence County, Indiana.  Each year during Red Ribbon Week, we plan a presentation to take into the elementary schools and the middle schools to encourage the kids to say no to drugs, alcohol and tobacco.  For the past two years we have partnered with Hoosier Uplands and arranged to have Professor Steve be the presenter.  The first year we did a program about not smoking.  He showed the kids, by using science, why they should never start smoking.  This year the program was about alcohol.  He showed them how powerful alcohol was and why it does not have any business in our bodies.  The kids, teachers and administrators loves the presentations.  Professor Steve is really able to hold the kids' attention, entertain and teach them all at the same time.  I would highly recommend Professor Steve for any presentation to youth."

Professor Steve's Flight & Space Show

flying saucer

On May 25, 1961, President John F. Kennedy presented his dream before a joint session of Congress: we would send a man to the moon by the end of the decade.  That dream became a reality on July 20, 1969, when astronaut Neil Armstrong made his "giant leap for mankind.

President Kennedy dreamed big, but so did many others before him.  In this program, Professor Steve will deal with some of those who dreamed about flying like the birds & laid the groundwork needed to make space travel a reality.  We will explore the inventions of DaVinci, the machines of the Wright Brothers & what it takes to actually leave the ground.  Plus, we will witness poor Mr. Marshmallow as he expands to twice his size in the hazardous vacuum chamber.

Science Day with Professor Steve

Looking for science education on a large scale?  Professor Steve can be yours for the entire day, making it possible to combine convocations, small group activities & classroom visitations all on the same visit.  A great way to get a lot of Professor Steve at a price you can afford.
