“Allenbrook Elementary in Charlotte, NC was a very lucky participant in the Orbit Earth Expo presented by Ginny and Bailey.  Both presenters were warm and engaging towards out K-5 student population.  All lessons were age appropriate and a perfect extension to what students are learning in the classroom.  Ginny and Bailey truly enjoy what they are doing and it shows in their enthusiasm during their demonstration.  Their comprehensive and hands on approach to science is exactly what our students needed during their instructional day.  We are so appreciative of this opportunity and know that this was a memorable experience for all!  Thank you Expo Earth!”

“First, please know what a great pleasure it was having you ladies here at Union today. Second, I must admit I didn’t know what to expect but I was very pleasantly surprised by how good the interactive experience was! I heard really good, positive feedback from our teachers and obviously, from the looks on their faces, the kids loved it, too! I just passed along one of the flyers to my 4th grade teacher to keep in mind for the solar system experience for next year. I will most definitely pass along how good the experience was to my elementary colleagues when we meet! I wish the two of you the best in your endeavors and I hope you stay in the Atlanta area! You are very good at what you do! We hope to have you back again!”

“Our 6th graders loved Rocky! The presentation had a great variety of activities to keep the students engaged and the presenters made the content very memorable. Never again will our students get confused over the difference between weathering and erosion! Rocky was able to illustrate 6thgrade Earth Science standards in a big way that wouldn’t have been possible in the classroom alone.”

“Our teachers were impressed with how much you included and how well your presentation aligned to the standards. Many teachers I talked to said you both were hilarious. They loved your energy! The kids had a great time and have a better understanding of weathering and erosion. Fantastic!”

“This is the first assembly we’ve had all year that really related to our curriculum. While I appreciate cultural arts assemblies, it was refreshing to have my students attend a presentation that directly related to what I was teaching in my classroom.”

“As a curriculum specialist, I was very impressed with the Big Canyon Balloon presentation. I was able to observe presentations at three different elementary grade levels and each of them did an excellent job with student engagement, vocabulary and making abstract science concepts “stick” with students.”

“The Big Canyon Balloon presentation was a wonderful hands-on learning experience for Midway’s 3rd and 5th Graders! They were engaged in learning and reviewing important Earth Science Standards and were given fun ways to remember important vocabulary directly related to the standards! We will definitely use the program again for other Grade Levels at our school! Thanks again for coming to Midway where all students are learning to think scientifically!”
