Doktor Kaboom! “It’s Just Rocket Science”

In an explosive line-up of entertaining science experiments, the zany, high energy German scientist Doktor Kaboom! hilariously explains the scientific hurdles of space travel. Young astronauts will join him for “experiments” that bring to life constructs like trajectory, centripetal and centrifugal force, and Newton’s Third Law. Great for all ages, though recommended for kids 6–16. Doktor Kaboom! is the brainchild of comedian and actor David Epley, a man who believes science is for everyone and is better shared in ways that inform and entertain. With audience participation and improv, no two shows are alike, and many kids have asked their parents to stay for the second show. For 20 years, Doktor Kaboom! has combined his passions for writing, performing and directing original material and his training at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics. David is a proud dad living in Seattle who tours internationally.
