Testimonials

Science in the Rockies

The leadership workshop was so valuable for me as a high school science teacher. I plan on using these demonstrations as life lessons that my students will remember for years to come. In addition, many of these lessons can be incorporated into our professional development sessions throughout the year with my colleagues.

Shelly Johnston – 2016 Participant

Your STEM conference was outstanding! I had to redo my cabinets to fit all the new supplies we received. My principal was so impressed with the strategies and ideas we brought back that she wants others to go to the conference next year. Amazing!

I learned creative and engaging ways to make Science even more interesting and exciting, but Steve and his team took beyond that by connecting our favorite books with Science. It was AMAZING!!!!

I will use more science hands-on activities to connect with children’s literature. I ‘ve used the same old fizzing volcano or fizzing pumpkin over and over again year after year. I have learned a lot of new exciting experiments in this workshop. Experiments that’ll nurture their natural curiosity and it’ll surely help the kids be thinkers and problem-solvers. Let’s promote STEM to these future scientists, engineers, and mathematicians! The earlier, the better!

You gave us amazing television on Modern Marvels. One minute you’re talking about the science of super cold temperatures and the next minute we are all standing in the middle of a giant liquid nitrogen cloud. You’re a pro.

Take it from someone who has worked with Steve on live television every week for the last 15 years… Steve knows how to create TV moments that viewers remember. Things fizz, pop and explode and so does the e-mail I get when he lights me on fire.

Mark Koebrich, News Anchor

KUSA-TV Denver

If you are looking for energy and surprises on television, Steve’s the master at it. Who would have guessed that Steve’s original segment showing something fun to do with a roll of Mentos and a bottle of Diet Coke back in 2005 would make our 9News science guy an internet sensation? Steve Spangler’s approach to doing television is always fun and engaging both for our viewers and our on-air talent. Bottom line… Steve knows how to create fun and viral television experiences that viewers remember.

Patti Dennis, Vice President, News

You’re a total pro on camera! Mentos soda geysers and exploding Pop Rocks made our Science of Candy segments over the top fun. I’ve never heard the crew so excited about a location shoot.

STEM Camp

I have to tell you I think this camp is amazing and Steve is great with the kids!  We stumbled on Steve by accident when I was looking for fun stuff to do in quarantine.  I don’t know if you do the virtual camps always or if this was a quarantine solution, but I hope you continue!  Declan loves it!

This week has been awesome! I wish I had a dime for every time Delaney said, “Steve, you’re a genius!”

I’m a 2nd grade teacher & will be using some of Steve’s tricks next year!

Thank you for this experience!

Karen Blanton – Parent

It is amazing what can be accomplished with 30 kids on Zoom in an hour! As a scientist myself, I am loving seeing all of the engagement and the interactions the kids get with Steve. Experience of a lifetime.

Wendy Jamison – Parent

Virtual STEM Camp 2020

On Monday, both my son and daughter said, “Now I love science even more because of STEM camp.” Thanks for making this the highlight of their summer!

Lisa Catmull – Parent

Virtual STEM Camp 2020

As a parent it has been a pleasure to experience camp alongside my child.  It’s been a unique learning experience to see my child learn a subject and then apply what he has learned later on in the day. Each day he has asked to Facetime his grandparents and aunt who live in California to show them what he has learned from you. Thank you for the amazing week.

Jennifer Gorrell – Parent

Virtual STEM Camp 2020

The learning keeps happening even after camp is over. Tonight we had a Bubble Olympics competition. Sawyer is absolutely loving camp. Thank you for making it so amazing and fun!

Jen Smith – Parent

Virtual STEM Camp 2020

Thank you so much for making learning fun and reigniting the learning flame for my son. I know it sounds silly, but it warmed my heart when I heard him ask a question – I could see and hear his confidence!

Tamara – Parent

Virtual STEM Camp 2020

Each day my twin girls woke up so eager and enthusiastic to start camp, and when it was over would say, “We can’t wait for tomorrow’s experiments!” Thanks to Steve for creating such an engaging experience.

Erin Voght – Parent

Virtual STEM Camp 2020

My son kept telling me how much he was loving everything and how amazing it was to meet one of his idols. In a time where everything has been so uncertain and so much fun has been canceled, you have brought so much joy to our family!

Lauren and Tanner Stahl – Parents

Virtual STEM Camp 2020

As life has moved online I was hesitant and not sure about virtual science, but within the FIRST FEW MINUTES my young scientist was hooked and participating more then he did during any other virtual class.  Steve and the whole team did a great job keeping the kids engaged and participating. Virtual STEM camp was an amazing experience! Don’t tell anyone but… I found myself finishing work early to get to participate in all of the experiments.

Jolena – Parent

Virtual STEM Camp 2020

Steve’s love of STEM is topped only by his genuine love for children. He challenges them to seek solutions, instead of providing ready answers. Steve teaches the kids that STEM goes beyond science. No one presents a science concept like Steve. My son calls him a trickster AND a scientist. Steve’s flair for presentation combined with authentic enthusiasm really engage my children. They couldn’t wait for STEM camp to start. It was the highlight of every day and definitely the highlight of the summer. Even with a Zoom class of 30 screens, Steve makes every child feel noticed and special. He praises every child and builds them up. Steve mentors the next generation of scientists, instilling both a sense of wonder and engaging showmanship. His love of teaching and of children is real and palpable.”

Lisa Catmull – Parent
