Students of Washington Drive Primary School in the Harborfields Central School District recently took part in a vaudevillian presentation that explored the earth and the effects of littering. The Grand Falloons, Professor W. and his companion Meatloaf entertained students throughout an interactive assembly titled “Professor Winklebottom’s Earth Science Circus.”

During the course of the 45-minute performance, which consisted of music, magic and juggling, students had the opportunity to explore a myriad of earth-related challenges and topics output from the “Commonsensenator.” This music-making, light-flashing computer encouraged students to take action and develop a better understanding of abstract concepts such as “What is litter?” “Where do the materials of everyday life come from?” and “How, what and why do we recycle?”

“Our aim is to interactively illustrate how nature works in cycles,” explained Kim Winslow (Professor W.), a 15-year veteran of the Big Apple Circus. “We want children to walk away with the knowledge that we can work more like nature and recycle.”
