Energetic, Entertaining, Engaging

Bruce appearing at Kinkaid Lower School, Houston

I love to introduce audiences of ALL ages to the Math and Magic of Pop-Ups. But especially the delightful elementary age students. In the school year of 2018-2019 before the pandemic, my presentation was requested by school librarians over 175 times!

Presentations Tailored to ALL Age Groups. Even Adults!

I don’t let a year go by without having 
Bruce Foster’s presentation at my school. 
The kids and teachers both LOVE learning 
about the art of paper engineering! He has 
such a winning way with the students!”  
—Tracey Sanders, 
Librarian Tomball Elementary School

Thank you so much for the fabulous (Zoom) presentation! We all enjoyed listening to your stories and learning about paper engineering. I also want to thank you for your flexibility as we have had to make so many changes along the way.  I hope we have a chance to host you in-person in the near future. Take care! – Mellissa Sanchez, Librarian Meadows Elementary, Fort Bend ISD

Bruce was a polished presenter who deftly 
handled our 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders. His 
highly engaging topic of the physics and publication of pop-up books was well 
received by both students and teachers 
alike! I highly recommend [him] for any 
school library presentation, as well as a 
great author to have visit a science, STEM 
or math group! —Josephine Stringer, 
Librarian Pine Shadows Elementary, Houston

Details of Scheduling

Presentations are 45-60 minutes each depending on your schedule (60 minutes is preferred. There are so many fun things to share!), 30 minutes for K-1. Four sessions available per day. There is a two session minimum. Presentations require a projector, with speaker if available. If in a large space, like gym or cafeteria, a lapel mic is required. By far, the best experience for the students is a more intimate location, like the library itself.

Workshops for up to 25 are possible, 90 minutes each.

For locations outside the Houston area travel expenses should be included. I encourage schools to group a visit on consecutive days in the same week for best rates and sharing of those expenses.

Zoom presentations are also available if in-person sessions are not possible. Please call to discuss if that is the case.
