PIRATE
SCHOOL! 
Welcome aboard, mateys! Pirate School!  is
in session.  This is a madcap, slap-dash pirate training academy that
allows both youngsters and adults to discover their ‘inner-swashbuckler.’ 
Pirate School! is
a one-man, sea-faring vaudeville show that spoofs the Golden Age of Sail and
satisfies children’s universal curiosity about the briny buccaneers of yore.

Unlike any Science Comedy show on the
high-seas today, “Pirate School: The SCIENCE of Pirates!”
excites and motivates students grades K-5 with piratical fun while introducing
simple concepts outlined in the Next Generation Science Standards.

Historically, seafarers have pushed
science and technology forward and who better to captivate and expand
children’s horizons than the swaggering staff of Pirate School!? Concepts
addressed will include atmospheric pressure, wind and currents, aerodynamics of
a sailboat (Science), simple machines (Engineering), navigation (Math), and of
course the flight of a cannonball (Technology).

Combining important
educational subjects with the universal dream of swashbuckling adventure, this
program aims to stir the spirit and galvanize attention with a mischievous
blend of interactive clown theater, eccentric props, adept magic, a rich
musical score, cartoon-like sound effects AND SCIENCE! Recommended for grades K-5.
