“The intent is to allow students access to high level STEM opportunities that they might not otherwise get to see because of their socioeconomic status,” said Dr. Donald White. “Plus, it’s just plain cool stuff!”

iScience: LIVE! with Dr. Donald White will be coming to the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts Monday.

iScience is White’s faced paced, high-energy “mad scientist” show.

The one hour show focuses on engaging students of all ages in science using quirky, funny and amazing science tricks. “It’s not magic … it’s science."

There are three shows Monday. Two sold out shows are for Coweta students; the third show at 7 p.m. is for the community. The show is for kids and adults.

White, science content specialist for the Coweta County School System, has been doing science presentations for years. “Throughout the show we’ll talk to the teachers about how what they’re seeing can be used in their classrooms to helps students learn science topics and to engage the students,” White said.

Experiments include a hover craft, bed of nails and gigantic elephant toothpaste explosion.

There will be two giant projection screens during the live show so everyone can see the details of what is going on. White will be assisted by Stan McMichael, assistant principal at Western Elementary, and Chris Sewell, AP biology teacher at East Coweta High School.

Tickets are $5, and proceeds fund scholarships for Coweta students to attend Camp Invention this summer. “The intent is to allow students access to high level STEM opportunities that they might not otherwise get to see because of their socioeconomic status,” White said. “Plus, it’s just plain cool stuff!”

In addition to the live performances, White has the iScience show on Cowetatv.com. For more information visit cowetatv.com/iscience.php .

You can buy tickets at thecentreonline.net or at the door. You can contact the Centre at 770-254-ARTS (2787). The Centre is located at 1523 Lower Fayetteville Road, Newnan.
