"Larry Wirtz's The Magical World of Science does an excellent job of introducing numerous scientific principles through many demonstrations. I would highly recommend Mr. Wirtz to any school who wants to get the students excited about science!"
Eric Deisler - Science Teacher
Paulding Middle School

Paulding, Ohio


"I would like to thank you for traveling to our school to share your science education program with our gifted population at the banquet for gifted students, and also to stimulate 500 other students in Lincoln School to think about science.

Your program is very appropriate for all ages and our parents and children loved it. They were especially intrigued with the electric chair and the fact that a jet engine could be accessed so easily in a garage sale.

I, as a teacher, was so elated that you would give Tesla the recognition that he deserves. His life is a story for gifted students to examine. The components of ethics, whose ideas are given the proper credit, etc. are a great lesson for gifted students.

Thanks again for giving our school a great science education program."

"Mr. Larry Wirtz was an incredible and dynamic speaker! He kept our primary students' attention for 45 minutes. That is a feat in itself! Larry had such an important yet challenging message to deliver. Not only did he speak about bullies and victims, he also shared information about caring people and how they can make a difference. He delivered his message through his wondrous magic. We're still trying to figure out how he managed to put the newspaper back together! Thank you so much for making a difference in the lives of the students and staff at Berlin Elementary School."

"The direct message of being a bully is not ok, that it is wrong was very powerful. There is something wrong when children think it's ok to hurt others. Also all students were impacted, whether they were the bully, the victim, or the bystanders who did nothing."
