Resembling a living cartoon with his animated movement and non-stop energy, Garry Krinksy brings his Toying with Science program to Missouri University of Science and Technology this month.

The final event in this season’s School Outreach Program will be held at 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 24, and at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 25. The performances will be held in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla, Mo. Tickets are $3.50 each.

Toying with Science is a fast-paced, varied and dynamic program that was commissioned and developed with the Museum of Science in Boston. The show explores, among other things, the scientific principles of gravity, leverage, fulcrums and simple machines.

Krinksy combines circus skills, mime, original music and audience involvement to help students investigate basic scientific information and delve into the imaginations of scientists who explore our world.

This program is recommended for children in third through sixth grades. More information on the Missouri S&T School Outreach Program and a downloadable study guide is available online, or call the school outreach coordinator at 573-341-6365.
