Steve Spangler and our science demo team spent the first part of the week at New York’s Toy Fair.
What happens when you put 150 teachers from around the world in the same room for three days with a team of instructors who are over-the-top excited about teaching science? Enthusiasm for making science fun spreads like a virus!
If you are looking for the perfect gift for the teacher in your life, consider giving them the gift of education. Steve Spangler and his team of educators come together for three days in July for Science in the Rockies. This is hands-on science professional development training that is guaranteed to re-energize and excite every teacher.
This is not a “sit-and-watch” teacher training… this is a “get-up-and-do” learning experience featuring over 75 engaging activities that teachers can take home and immediately share with their students.
The best part? All of the activities are aligned with Common Core and Next Gen Science Standards, so teachers can easily fit them into their lesson plans.
The workshop is $895 for three days. All participants leave the workshop with $300 of hands-on learning materials. They also receive a 250-page training manual that details the entire learning experience.
In just three days, teachers will learn how to use exploration and inquiry to create unforgettable learning experiences for their students. Send your favorite teacher to Colorado July 8-10, 2014 for this inspiring workshop!

Bullying makes the news almost every week. It exists in schools, sports fields, playground and online. We’ve also recently learned bullying is also present in professional organizations like the NFL. Children who are bullied tend to withdraw and suffer emotional scars. In extreme cases, some become so desperate, they take their own lives.
Steve sat down with professional speaker and certified professional coach Laurie Flasko to talk about bullying and what we can do as parents and teachers to put a stop to it.
In his 15th appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, Steve Spangler brought a few of his science tricks to the talk show.
Steve made yet another colossal mess on Ellen’s set as he rigged 60 leaf blowers with 60 toilet paper rolls to launch at the same time. When Ellen pushed the button, the studio was instantly swallowed up by flying toilet paper as a demonstration of Bernoulli’s Principle.
Ellen also demonstrated centripetal force by swinging a tub of water over her head.

Steve Spangler visited the set of The Doctors Science Lab this week to share lessons on the science behind some health discomforts…
With Steve as their lab instructor, The Doctors donned their lab coats and went to work. They used Red Cabbage Indicator, Milk of Magnesia, giant flasks and a few ‘glubs’ of vinegar to demonstrate how antacids work and the classic Elephant’s Toothpaste demonstration to show what happens with food poisoning in the stomach.
