Supermarket Science

This STEM assembly gets students excited about the wonders of science, even in a place as boring as the grocery store!

Age Range
K-8

Chocolate syrup, baby diapers, and spaghetti probably aren’t the first things you think of when you think about science. But if you’re a student of Supermarket Science, you’ll immediately laugh, recalling the fun science lessons and crazy antics those simple store-bought items can create.

You’ll also recall that hard-boiled eggs, applesauce, and a flying clipboard are all a part of the fun of Supermarket Science, a STEM assembly show that will make elementary and middle school students excited about the wonders of science. Nearly a dozen students participate on stage in this interactive and hysterical science school show, all while learning that chemical reactions, air pressure, inertia, and potential and kinetic energy make up a big part of our everyday lives. Supermarket Science is everywhere, even in place as uninteresting, unexciting and routine as the supermarket!  

This 45-minute elementary and middle school science show is rounded out with incredible stunts, goofy silliness, and even a few magical tricks that keep kids on the edge of their seats. But Supermarket Science is not just a series of super cool science effects with pantry items, it’s also an important introduction to using the tools of observation and testing to find answers. The best part? It's a perfect complement to your school's science standards curriculum, so your teachers will LOVE it too! You'll never see a trip to the grocery store the same way ever again. Laughs, learning, and fun are guaranteed during the Supermarket Science STEM school assembly!
