A Science Lesson from SONIC Drive-In
Now you can eat a burger, drink a limeade and enjoy some cool science experiments from Steve Spangler Science at your local SONIC® America’s Drive-In®. We’re excited to announce the release of six books that we wrote for Sonic as part of their Wacky Pack® kid’s meal. The six book series are called Science Sliders because each page has a section that slides out to reveal another cool science secret. It will take you a minute to try to figure out how the colors appear… pretty cool.
Each book shares a different science theme: Air-Mazing Science, Science Magic, Sounds of Science, Optical Illusions, Light and Color and Backyard Science. The experiments are easy to conduct at home and may even use supplies that are found in your bag like ketchup, salt, napkins, fries… even the bag itself.
“SONIC is delighted to partner with Steve Spangler Science as part of our Accent on Education program,” said Tamara Stanley, director of segment marketing for SONIC® Drive-In®. “At SONIC, we blend fun with education by including interactive educational toys in our Wacky Pack kids’ meal. The Science Sliders books are a great example of how we help our youngest guests understand how fun learning can be.”

We at Steve Spangler Science are excited about SONIC’S desire to make their kid’s meals both fun and educational. Teachers work hard to make science fun and meaningful in their classrooms. Any time we can make science fun outside the classroom, our chances are greater for getting kids hooked.

I just saw you speak at our state conference last week. So you can imagine my surprise when my kids were playing with your science books over the weekend at Sonic. I just thought that they were doing science experiments with their straws and then I saw the back of the book with your logo. That’s awesome, Steve.
You guys are everywhere. I saw you on the television commercial and the magazine article and now you’re in my kid’s happy meal. You can tell you really like what you do.
We were eating breakfast at Sonic when my daughter said, “Don’t you know this Steve Spangler guy?” The next thing you know she’s asking the lady for more paper bags so she can teach her class how to do the invisible egg in the bag trick. Keep up the great work.
Where will you be next? The side of a milk carton? I used to teach with you years ago. It’s cool to see where you’ve gone in such a short time.
You should have those Sonic guys do the Mentos and Diet Coke experiment. That would be a funny video.
It’s funny that you should mention the Sonic commercial. I’ve suggested that we do some version of the Mentos Geyser with those two guys in the car. Now the idea is in the hands of the people who do the marketing. Great minds think alike. –Steve
