Captain leslie was fantastic. Her love for science is infused in each hands-on activity she ran for our group of 15 7- and 8- year-old girls. We had bubbling cauldrons and smoke vortices and all kidns of other things. She adapted her show for our audience and she was tireless and super enthusiastic. She is a real find. I looked at the "chain" science entertainers and they had a much more canned and dumbed down approach. At the time of our event, Captain leslie was getting her masters degree in education of science, so she really approaches the subject from a place of deep understanding. Hire her. You'll be so glad you did.
