Arkansas Science Festival @Astate Kevin Delaney

Arkansas resident Kevin Delaney is known for his love of science, and his ability to make it fun for all. He developed his unique brand of “awesome science” at the Museum of Discovery in Little Rock, AR, where he worked from late 2011 until mid-2017. At the museum he performed demonstrations for visitors of all ages and helped to develop the popular Science After Dark program for adults. Kevin’s talent for science communication landed him a recurring role on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” as the resident science presenter, performing demonstrations with Jimmy and celebrity guests as lab assistants. The results have always delivered large-scale eruptions, explosions, and more. Delaney took his love of... science to cable TV, where he had his own TV show called “Street Science” on the Science Channel. Prior to joining the museum staff, Delaney worked as a playwright, performer, and educator. Developing and presenting educational programs at a zoo, and working with the staff and animals there, sparked a professional interest in combining his storytelling skills with his scientific curiosity.

“Our mission is to help folks get excited about science, technology, engineering and math in a really unique and dynamic environment,” Delaney said. “And with ‘Street Science,’ we took that environment and kind of spilled it out everywhere.”

Shows are at 10:30 am and 1:00 pm. Tickets range from $6-$10. Contact the A-State Central Box Office at 870-972-2781.
