2021 SCHOOLS PROGRAM
In 2021 The Trash Can Man will be touring schools throughout SOUTH AUSTRALIA, VICTORIA and TASMANIA with an exciting EARTH | AIR | FIRE | WATER themed version of his award-winning live show.
WE COME TO YOU!
Join the Trash Can Man as he turns TRASH into scientific TREASURE... at YOUR SCHOOL!
This Show is NOT Rubbish! is a brilliantly inventive science show that playfully examines all those things that humans tend to absently throw away - using trash, rubbish and litter to create moment after moment of spectacle and surprise in an epic exploration of of SUSTAINABILITY.
EARTH | AIR | FIRE | WATER
In 2021 the Trash Can Man will take you on a rubbishy adventure through EARTH, AIR, FIRE and WATER. Along the way you'll explore how the Earth's resources are used to create a variety of materials and objects - and then use those objects to demonstrate a fascinating (and often spectacular!) collection of science concepts.
You can expect hot air balloons, smoky air doughnuts, a drill-driven sprinkler, instant clouds, a bed of nails, several fireballs... and so MUCH MORE!
Featuring around 20 common 'throw away' items, the Trash Can Man will surprise and delight your students with a cavalcade of literal thrills and spills... and then make sure that everyone knows exactly how to best dispose of the results.
You'll be surprised by what you do and don't know!
SCIENCE IDEAS EXPLORED
Renewable and green fuels, combustion, polymers, micro plastics, biodegradable and compostable materials, the water cycle, inertia, friction, pressure, surface area, Bernoulli's principle, density, vortices... and much MUCH more!
"Super exciting... It's definitely NOT rubbish!"
AND OTHER INFORMATION
This schools performance is supported by a FREE online web series. This ever-expanding collection of rubbishy adventures can be viewed either before or after the Trash Can Man's visit. View all the episodes HERE!
