Doktor Kaboom It’s Just Rocket Science

Suggested for grades 3-8

Referred to as “part Mr. Wizard and part Mr. Rogers,” Doktor Kaboom uses the excitement of rocketry to present Newton’s Laws of Motion. Each of Newton’s 3 laws is clearly explained and comically explored in multiple over-the-top demonstrations, and followed by a DIY project that students can do as a class, in groups, or individually. 3 Laws, 3 lessons, 3 projects!

Doktor Kaboom intersperses the lessons with discussions on safety and personal empowerment to bring home the point that “science is for everyone, not just the person who wins the science fair every year.” This Arts Engagement ties directly to new science standards, it is the perfect program for introducing or reviewing the physics of motion.
