I was very impressed with the two shows you performed for
our children at P.S.165 Queens.
Your vast knowledge and expertise were evidenced by the
completely different shows you did for grades 4-6 and then Kindergarten-3.
Dealing with the more difficult subjects of air pressure and water pressure
with the upper grades, you led them to incisive questions and comments. Then dealing with friction and gravity with
the lower grades, you lead them to think about everyday phenomena and their
causes while you were still highly amusing.
Throwing in vital facts while entertaining with
sleight-of-hand you really proved that "Science is Fun." Many
of the children are looking into your books to try some of your
science tricks out together in the classroom.
I recommend your shows and books to all schools looking for
educational entertainment. Thank you for coming to our school.

"Scientific Magic Show" you presented to our fourth, fifth and sixth graders today was wonderful. The children were enthralled
with your "experiments" and intently interested in every scientific
fine sense of humor and showmanship helped create a marvelous, fun‑filled
atmosphere in our school. This effect will undoubtedly carry over to the
classroom and will be reflected in an increased appreciation of science on the
part of our students. Thanks for
thoroughly entertaining ‑ and educational ‑ assembly program.

I would like to take this
opportunity to thank you for coming to our school. Not only was your
performance informative to our children, but they were totally thrilled by your
information and your presentation was exciting and fresh.
The 2 performances were age
appropriate. As our school’s Children’s Program Committee chairperson, it is
sometimes difficult to sit through 2 performances of a show. However with some
clever changes, your presentation was welcomed by all. The children also truly
enjoyed your hands on approach to learning such fun science facts.
With much thanks for the well
informed science ideas, that will keep our children receptive to how much fun
it is to learn science, and use it to have fun in magic.

This letter is in reference to the wonderful assembly
presented at Turners Fills
High School. As Dean of Students, it is my responsibility
to provide for school assemblies for the high school. This was our fifth and
last assembly this year. By far your
presentation was the most educational interesting and fun for the
What I personally liked was the student centered and
interactive style by, involving students in the presentation The faculty had a
lot of positive feedback, which is quite rare. Usually I only receive the
“negative critics’ review”.
Please feel free to use me as a reference. I will suggest
you to others who might be planning assemblies. It was nice of you to travel to
the country from “the big apple?
