Dr. Zeemo personalized both of these presentation(s) based on the information we shared with him (goals, audience, time, etc....) prior to each event. Dr. Zeemo's experience and expertise was clearly evident as each audience he presented to came away inspired, smiling, and more knowledgeable than before their experience with Zeemo.
Dr. Zeemo connected with high school students and teachers at our first event as he showed real-world applications of physics principles (that many students only learn through reading and mathematical manipulation). Zeemo's ability to blend humor and excitement kept the students (and teachers) highly engaged and reinforced and expanded the learning these students had already experienced in the classroom. Zeemo further cemented this understanding as he allowed students to experience first hand the same demonstrations and activities they had just watched be performed. This experience for everyone watching (and then doing) was awesome.
Based on this success we invited Dr. Zeemo to be one of our featured presenters at an annual "Green" festival that targets students (of all ages) and parents as well as the general public. Dr. Zeemo made multiple presentations during this event, which lasted all day. Again the comments and reviews our committee received we excellent. Regardless of the age of student/participant everyone left the presentations excited about science, smiling, and smarter.
Dr. Zeemo is already booked for our next festival and will assuredly be invited to make classroom and/or assembly presentations at many of our local school districts during the upcoming year.

As a former building principal and district assistant superintendent, it brings high value to the educational environment when kids and adults experience laughing while learning.
It is hard to imagine that we have been collaborating for as many years as we have. Your flexibility and willingness to adapt to our needs is always appreciated, but most importantly, your connections to the multiple science and technology curriculum benchmarks clearly justifies the decisions to call on you over and over again.
Thanks for the great work and unique contribution to teaching, learning and kids!

I have seen Paul do a couple different shows (including one on electricity) and he always does a great job. He gets the kids involved and they all walk out of the assembly knowing more than they came in with. His price is very reasonable and he's worth every penny we pay for his shows. I would highly recommend him for any school, K-8!

The students were able to see science in action and it was fun!

Zeemo is a dynamic speaker that connects students with higher-level thinking. He had been more than willing to modify his presentation to meet the needs of our curriculum.
"The Yo-yo Man" is one of the highlights of our 5th grade camp experience. Each year his performance is a culminating activity that relates perfectly with our science curriculum, making his visit more than just entertainment. Paul's presentation supports the education of upper elementary and middle school students.
