Energetic, Entertaining, Engaging
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
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.
