Doktor Kaboom is Coming to SPARK!

For one night only… a spectacular show featuring Doktor Kaboom and the one and only MegaZapper!

This October marks the 10th anniversary of SPARK Museum signature event, the MegaZapper, and our friend Doktor Kaboom is coming to help us celebrate. The evening will be filled science, comedy, and of course, Kaboom! Doktor Kaboom, (that’s Doktor, never Dr. to be clear) is described as part Mr. Wizard, part Mr. Rogers, and let’s be honest, he’s all science. His shows are comedic, engaging, dynamic and the science is peppered with lessons about self-esteem, courage, and kindness. This family friendly show is one event this fall you definitely don’t want to miss.

The MegaZapper has been a staple at the Museum and in Bellingham for 10 years now, we thought there was no better way to celebrate than with Kaboom!

More About the Show

So much science, so little time. . . Doktor Kaboom is having trouble picking his favorite science demonstrations, so he’s bringing them all! Unfortunately, there are way too many to do them all in one show. The solution: The Wheel of Science! Doktor Kaboom has built a great big spinning wheel and labeled it with everything from optical illusions to chemical reactions to a homemade hovercraft, and more! At least a dozen fantastic demonstrations ready to go. Wherever the wheel stops, that’s what’s next! Will we turn a water bottle into a rocket or catapult bananas across the stage? Electrocute a pickle or create artificial gravity? Who knows? No two shows will be the same. So, step right up, and let’s spin that wheel!
