We offer a general presentation which includes demonstrations of basic physics concepts with hands on examples. These include: why things float; conservation of momentum; high voltage electrical demos; basic electrical-magnetic relationships; generation of electricity by riding a bicycle; the effects of extreme cold using liquid nitrogen; breaking water up into its basic elements of oxygen and hydrogen and showing how to use it as fuel; using prisms to show the light spectrum and energy. In addition, there are other topics available which can be combined with the General Science demonstration or offered separately. These topics include: The History of Timekeeping, Classical Celestial Navigation, Robotics, and Space Exploration.
