Join Sandi Schulte and her friends as they take your kids on a wild, imaginary tour of their backyards, neighborhoods and community parks. Using funny puppets, amazing experiments, engaging humor and hilarious magic tricks, they creatively teach children the scientific process while also presenting interesting facts about animals and the environment.
“Go Wild! A Scientific Look at Backyard Magic” program will be at the Blount County Public Library on Saturday, July 19, at 11 a.m.
According to Sandi Schulte Productions literature, “Each of our programs is designed to motivate your elementary age readers to explore the library, find new kinds of books and read! Our programs teach kids about science, geography, other cultures, character education and, of course, picking up a book and reading every day!” More information is available at www.SandiSchulte.com.
A former engineer, Sandi Schulte is a full-time educational presenter in Tennessee and nearby states. Because she has worked in the field of engineering, she is a role model for young women and girls who aspire to enter the fields of mathematics, science, and engineering. She earned both a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Active in Toastmasters, for years Schulte entertained children with sleight of hand magic and humorous puppet shows. In 2006, she decided to combine her love of science and teaching with her passion for entertainment, and Sandi Schulte Productions was born.
Schulte says she has “read research that indicates that children who read for pleasure score higher on any form of standardized tests, including IQ tests, state mandated assessments, and college entrance exams. Her mission is to instill in children a passion for reading.”
Free and open to the public, the program is at the Blount County Public Library, located at 508 N. Cusick Street, Maryville.
