My daughter keeps saying, "He must be called Great Scott because he is great!" The kids thoroughly enjoyed his interactive presentation as well as the adults. He was professional and a perfect addition to our science themed birthday party. Several of our guests requested his information. We would highly recommend him!
Great Scott was engaging and fun. All the kids were entertained and learned about science at the same time!
Scott was fantastic with the kids... he had them laughing and learning at the same time. Everyone had a ball including the adults. We added the crazy chemistry add on and it so very cool and exciting. Such a great amount of entertainment for the amount he charges.
Thanks again Scott!
Great Scott is fun and educational.
We loved having Great Scott at our school. He did an amazing job and worked really well with our preschoolers.
Our school has kids ranging from infants through age 6. Scott came well prepared with lots of "Wows" from all the kids that attended. My staff as well acknowledged that he did a great job. Thanks Scott!
The kids enjoyed the actual experiments, but it was a little too religious. Even though we are a ymca, we do not promote religion. He was asked to tone it down, but stated that I (director who was not present for the show) said it was okay, and I did not.
I was a little skeptical about a science act keeping the attention span of five year olds but I was very wrong. The kids had a wonderful time, they were very excited and laughed lots. We definitely recommend this act!
We threw a five year old "space" themed birthday party last weekend and Scott was the ultimate - professional, self-reliant, prompt, helpful, friendly and absolutely engaging, entertaining and educational for the 2-6 year olds in attendance. He had them all interested for an hour! All the parents were very impressed and asked for his information. I would absolutely recommend Scott for a party and would book him again.
Would recommend for big or small parties.
Scott performed at a party for my son, entertaining via his excellent science 'tricks' and good humor for a dozen kids (ages 2-12) as well as parents and family. Many of our friends were impressed - with the content and also how he got the kids and adults all involved in the show. It was a great addition to my son's party and I would highly recommend him without any hesitation.
Our PTA Board at Allen Avenue wanted to bring a science based assembly to our elementary school and we are so happy to have found Great Scott the Glad Scientist! Scott worked around our school's day and schedules and the content for each grade level was age appropriate and kept everyone engaged.
Scott's mixture of education and entertainment was a perfect balance. Teachers and adult volunteers were laughing right along with his antics as he showed students how an egg could squeeze into a tiny bottle, how dry ice worked by creating gas and bubbles and much more! Scott let our students know that they could be their own scientist by observing, asking questions and trying new things. Students got to be active participants during his show and loved it.
Scott had a great temperament, was incredibly funny and was able to manage a room full of students to keep them listening. Teachers reported that it was a very fun assembly and students said it was the best they've ever seen. We are looking forward to booking Great Scott the Glad Scientist next year.
I was looking for something cool to do as an "indoor" option for a rainy birthday party and booked Great Scott blindly. It ended up being the coolest party ever. My son was turning six and had about 30 kids at the party, ranging from two to seven. Scott held everyone's attention for over an hour, including the two year olds. He was so professional and the show felt very high end from beginning to end. I couldn't believe that it was so amazing for the price. I had at least 20 different parents approach me afterwards to ask where I found him and they all told me it was the best birthday party entertainment they had experienced in years. As parents of kids this age, we've all been to a lot of parties with pretty cheesy entertainment. This was so impressive, that I'm still getting people asking me about him! The best part is that on the night of his party, my son went to sleep telling me that his favorite part of his birthday was Great Scott and that he was so excited he got to go up and be his helper for so many fun experiments. If this wasn't a super rainy season, I would have just had the party at a park with no entertainment and, instead, I unintentionally ended up with a party my son will never forget. I can't think of enough amazing things to say about the little show Scott put on. The kids were laughing and sucked in the entire time and honestly, I think the parents were completely entertained throughout as well.
We had Great Scott do a science presentation for our homeschool group of kids ages 1-15 and he entertained everyone! Amazing educational presentation with nothing but positive feedback from all the kids and parents. Can't wait to have you back for another show. Thank you for your hilarious yet educational show! I give you 10 stars!
Response from Great Scott the Glad Scientist:
Thank you so much!
Can't wait to return!!
Scott was an amazing Glad science guy. He showed up on time and was so easy to get along with. He made all the kids laugh and enjoy his performance, mind you it was a 6 year old birthday party. All the kids loved making slime at the end. He even offered to stay to help me run games or anything else. I will definitely be booking him again for future events. He did a great job for a great price. Book Scott now!! He is amazing.
We used Scott for my son's 5th birthday party. There were 8 boys in attendance and Scott was able to keep them all engaged, even the ones who were shy and didn't want to participate. He was on time, professional and the boys loved him. I would not hesitate in booking him again.
Great Scott the Glad Scientist is really Great! The kids love interacting with his experiments. Scott is a very Funny and Friendly person. We have booked him to preform at our school site approximately three different times.
Always a good experience for the younger and older kids.
Thanks for your science Scott.

What People Are Saying:
“Great Scott was entertaining and educational. He delighted the audience while engaging their attention during the entire program. The audience was learning scientific facts during his entire program and enjoying every minute of it. Both children and adults were willing participants in actively assisting him in a variety of scientific demonstrations. He was a huge hit and has already been asked to return for a repeat performance.”
Assistant Library Director Glendora Library
“An amazing assembly that captivated the students and showed them how much fun science and learning truly can be!” Jammie Linn
PTA Mom and Teacher Washington Elementary
“Thank you for coming on Halloween. It was fun having you in our class room. We liked your experiments. They were cool."
Mrs. Lots 1st Grade Class
"Thank you so much for coming to visit Sutherland to our 5th graders how fun science can actually be! Students particulary enjoyed the vortex experiment wht the fog machine to illuminate how far the air can really go. This was a great way to introduce weather to my students and they will now have some background knowledge when we begin our the unit."
Mrs. Kazuko Tuttle
5th grade Teacher Sutherland Elementary
"Thank you for coming to our school for an assembly. I really liked the tesla coil. It was very cool. You have a great sense of humor. I wish I was a volunteer though. But I loved the experiments. I'm going to try the two connected bottles trick at home. I'm also going to try the vortex creator at home too."
I really appreciate you coming to our school. The most facinating part of the show was when you put the dry ice into the water, very intersting! I also liked the part where you made the plasma globe thing with the tesla coil. And the Big Grandpa Vortex, Great Scott that was unexpected! I Hope you fascinate more people. Thank You!
