Please contact Lauren Koppel at lauren@sciencefromscientists.org if you have questions.

Vacation Programs

Science from Scientists has partnered with the Whitehead Institute to offer week-long science programs that run over February vacations and during the summer months. These programs allow middle school students the chance to work closely with real scientists and explore different fields of science – from solving a mystery to exploring biology. Learn more about our Vacation Programs or contact cortney@sciencefromscientists.org for registration information and pricing.

Science Theater

Science from Scientists presents an interactive stage show for audiences of all ages. The show features exciting science demonstrations and accompanying explanations of such experiments such as elephant toothpaste, chemiluminescence, the invisible giant, a bed of nails and explosive rocket cannons. Prior performances in The Hall at Patriot Place have been featured in the Boston Globe, plus the Foxborough Patch and Walpole Patch.

We performed at Disney’s Epcot during National Engineers Week and the “Science Thrills Live” was featured in the AllEars.net blog. For an example of a Science Theater show and to see photos from our Disney performance, click here. Shows can be of varying lengths (20–60 minutes). Please contact us for more information, availability and pricing.

The Dr. Erika Show

Episodes of the “Dr. Erika Show” make science accessible and entertaining for elementary and middle school students across New England. The show was executive produced by Joshua Seftel, an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker who has produced educational programs for NOVA, PBS and WBGH. Its host, Dr. Erika, is a 2004 graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and earned a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the Boston University School of Medicine in 2012. She was also crowned Miss Massachusetts in 2004. Leveraging Dr. Erika’s unique background, the show is designed to teach children about science, break stereotypes and make STEM subjects more approachable and entertaining for children.
