"My name is Valerie Wallace and I have been the Cultural Arts Coordinator for Lakes Elementary School in Rockford, Michigan for the past 3 years. 2 years ago, I employed Mr. Wirtz for a science day at our school, and what a 'Hoot!' He reminded me of Robin Williams in the movie Flubber! He did two assemblies for the entire school which had the children completely involved in learning and laughing, then he went into each individual class of 3rd through 5th graders and concentrated on electricity. 'A great time was had by all!' My 5th grade teachers actually requested that he return to our school this past January to help prepare the kids for the MEAP testing. Larry incorporated our science curriculum into the assembly and reinforced everything that had been previously taught. (We still have toilet paper stuck in the cross beams of our library!)

I can't recommend Larry Wirtz enough! Even though I will no longer be at this school anymore, I know that he will be asked back again next school year. He has a rare talent for combining fun and learning together and keeping it interesting and exciting for a variety of ages in one group."

"My name is Mrs. Alicia Dickens, and I am a first grade teacher at Miller Elementary in Cement City, MI. I was privileged to listen to and participate in Mr. Larry Wirtz's Character Education program today.

The program addressed the effects of bullying, how it can make the victim of a bully feel, and what other can do to help. THe children were very involved and engaged in the presentation and seemed to really understand the important message that Mr. Wirtz presented. They were amazed by the magic tricks that were incorporated and entertained by Mr. Wirtz's funny and engaging personality throughout the presentation.

I highly recommend Mr. Wirtz's Character Education presentation as a beneficial and worthwhile program to be brought into schools."

"We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your program during our Science Fair last week. Putting on a program in an open gym, surrounded by 40 science centers and competing with a traveling zoo and hundreds of science projects might have undone some people, but you rose to the occasion and the whole show was awesome.

The organization of the program and the information in the program were great. Your ability to capture and hold the attention of such a mixed audience was terrific! You certainly do make science come alive!

Thank you again for being such a wonderful addition to our Science Fair."

"Today we had the privilege of hosting Larry Wirtz and his Magical World of Science. He delivered two performances to our K-2 building of 730 students. The students and staff alike were absolutely delighted as scientific principles were demonstrated through Larry's 'magic.' Principles were explained at an appropriate elementary level and Larry often reviewed and checked for understanding. Larry's Magical World of Science served as a great kick-off for our upcoming Science Fair.

Larry's program is fun, entertaining, and educational!"

"It was great fun having you work with our fourth graders today. You combined learning with hands-on fun. The kids really enjoyed the program and learned a lot in the process. As a teacher, I was glad to see a program encompass so many of the objectives of our own curriculum as well as the National Science Standards and MEAP objectives.

Larry worked with each of our fourth grades and had the children literally hopping in their seats. We enthusiastically await his visit next year."
