Pow! Science!

17 Jul

Only one day away from the season’s final Newport Hullabaloo!

Come out to the Newport Yachting Center at sunset (5:30-9pm) and join Festival Fete for live local entertainment, arts and much more!

Pow! Science! Will be there! Will you?

Pow! Science! started out in 2003 providing “Science Enrichment” to elementary and middle school aged kids through their unique hands on approach to the world of science. The team has since expanded from the days of working solely in school programs or at birthday parties. Pow! Science! can now be found at “almost any sort of venue where kids can be entertained and enlightened by science oriented activities!”
The Pow! Science! team is comprised of a number of science professionals who hold, or are working toward, degrees in Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Biology, Environmental Geology and Marine Science. One thing the team has in common is the desire to incorporate the audience into each and every experiment they conduct!
Pow! Science! has 13 different Classroom Science Presentations and 9 Birthday Party themes
If you attended last week’s Hullabaloo, we are sure you remember the Hotwheels/Blu Track set-up!
“Incidentally, “Pow!” is not an acronym. It’s just like the sound effect from the old Batman show in the 60s. If an experiment doesn’t have enough “Pow!” we won’t do it.” -Eric B., Pow! Science!
Check out Pow! Science! and purchase tons of cool science tools you can use on your own!
You won’t want to miss these guys, along with our other fabulous performers at the LAST Hullabaloo of the Season!

The more we learn about our participating artists, the more we want to share with you!

TEN31, a Rhode Island native company specializing in living art installations will be at the Newport Hullabaloo on June 27th!

We think what these guys do is pretty amazing and we think you will too! Check out what we learned…

TEN31 Productions

 

Who or what is the main inspiration behind your work? 
 
Nature (for our Human Nature Collection) , Mythology and classic sculpture for our living statues. We relish in the opportunity to bring the characters, creatures and demigods from our childhood stories to life in modern times.
 
Was there a particular instance that helped you to realize your love for the arts? 
I have been an artist all my life, my mom handmade all of my Halloween costumes as a kid. We were always busy making pretend, art has always been in my blood.
 
What is the medium/genre you enjoy working with the most? 
Making fantastical costumes out of all sorts of materials is the best job in the world! We use pretty much every kind of material possible, fabric, paint, cardboard, rope, etc. We all have permanent glue gun blisters.
 
In what way do you hope your art form in general will affect the world? 
Everyone in the world today is extremely busy. We have the ability to stop people in their tracks, inviting them to pause, if only for a minute, and take a trip back in time to when they themselves would make pretend. Often its children that stop their parents and point at us, they can usually see the magic thats happening before their parents do.
 
Who is your favorite artist/performer and why? 
We are inspired by anyone who steps out of the box and is brave enough to march to the beat of their own drummer!
 
Tell us something you feel makes your personal art form truly unique. 
 
Normally when someone goes to see a theatrical performance, they are seated and the performer is on stage. There is a huge distance between them. When someone attends an event with a TEN31 Performance, they are encouraged to interact with us. This one on one energy exchange is absolutely unique and we feel that it is one of the main reasons why we have become so successful. Its an absolute MUST to get your photo taken with us!
 
How long does it take to get ready? Where do you get your costumes?  
It takes us 2 hours to get ready and all of our costumes are handmade at TEN31’s workshop in Pawtucket RI.
Check out TEN31 online and see them live at the Newport Hullabaloo on June 27th, you won’t want to miss it!
