Cobb, Vicki Science and Arts Surprises Literature- Authors,
Multicultural- Other,
Science
Vicki Cobb's SCIENCE SURPRISES is a highly entertaining fast paced, one woman show that is guaranteed to captivate kids and their teachers. She sets the stage with poetry and a short video of her trip to East Africa when she researched her book This Place is Wild. Then she answers the question, Why science, anyhow? by showing how our senses and experiences limit how much we can learn of the universe and that science is a way of getting past our limitations. Instead of showing the audience the world of science, Vicki invites the audience to discover the science in their world. Everyone in the audience experiences illusions and individuals participate in doing irresistible challenges from her best selling books Bet You Can! and Bet You Can't! Most importantly, Vicki's program gets kids excited and enthusiastic about science, reading and poetry and she gives teachers a list of suggestions for follow-up activities

All of my reading programs are designed to capture and keep the attention of students in grades K-6th.

A funny, interactive program that encourages kids to spend more time reading books. It also covers the importance of taking care of library books in a very unique way. There are 8 different popular children books that are used and talked about all throughout my reading program. I focus and show the kids how important reading everyday is so very important and the library as well. I use story-telling in a very magical way and show your students how books have lots of gold on the inside as long as they check them out and read them! My goal with school programs is to get your students excited about the learning process and to help reinforce what is already being taught at school.

RiverJack uses “loop” (live recording) technology to achieve a full band sound by layering percussion, bass, acoustic guitars, harmonica,trumpet and vocals. During a 60- to 75-minute session, participants will explore the craft of songwriting by writing and recording a song that is uniquely their own, based on a theme or curriculum-related topic. They will work cooperatively to form a musical composition by: brainstorming ideas, writing lyrics, composing a melody, and gaining personal experience with the creative process. The song is then rehearsed and recorded, and the library will receive a CD/mp3 containing the participants’ song.
