We strive to keep our programs accessible and sustainable; we are supported exclusively by our clients. Each show requires different materials, different vehicles, and different staff to get the job done right, so their costs vary. Travel also varies, and can be found below.

20040729a_whatergy_0239CoolScience

The coolest show around, CoolScience explores how we stay cool in the summer heat, and warm up in the winter chill.  Play with liquid Nitrogen, water balloons, fire, and SCIENCE!

  • Audience size: fewer than 100
  • Space needs: one 6-8′ table and electricity
  • Setup time: 20-30 minutes
  • Show time: 45-75 minutes

Included: Choose from one of the following:

Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream
Help us bring together milk, cream,  sugar, and liquid Nitrogen to make the freshest, smoothest ice cream you’ve ever tasted!

Trash Can Launch
Join us in launching a trash can sky high! A fire-less explosion? Now that’s cool.

CoolScience: $690
Additional Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream over 50 is $2 per person.


LaserScience

LaserScience is not just a laser show; it is an interactive exploration of vision and light, using audience volunteers and questions.  Like all of our shows, nothing is scripted.

  • Audience size: 100-800
  • Setup time: 30-45 minutes
  • Show time: 45-60 minutes
  • Needs: one 6-8′ table and a power outlet
  • Space Needs: Tall (>15 feet), dark (ideally dark enough that you couldn’t see other objects easily) – Auditoriums, Barns, Gymnasiums work great
  • Please silence any smoke detectors (heat detectors are fine).  We can’t see beams in the air without adding mist, which can set off smoke detectors that can’t tell the difference.

LaserScience: $890

Add-On: Fog and Beams in the Air – $50
During the “lasershow” portions of the show, ideally we’ll add a light water-based fog into the air. This makes the beams brilliantly visible in the air and turns flashlights into light sabers. Please silence/disable/disarm smoke detectors for the show!

Custom Shows:
Want a customized show for your Olympics / Color War breakout or special event?  We can design custom-animated laser projections as part of the show or to project in or on the outside of your event spaces.  Call us for more information.  Check out an example from last summer:

Schedule multiple shows, and save!

If we don’t have to pack up, load up, unload, and set up, that saves us a lot.  We’re happy to share that savings with you.  Book multiple consecutive shows in the same location for very substantial discounts.

We go anywhere!

Wondergy travels all over the country, and sometimes around the world.  We visit over 1000 schools and summer programs each year, in over 35 US states. We’d love to visit you!

Travel prices by county

For shows in June 2016 onward, our travel costs are computed by county. Just move your mouse pointer over to your county, and you should see the rates for that particular county. Scroll to zoom in, drag to move around, and click your county to zoom up close.

Bring Wondergy with Less Travel (without a transporter)

Reducing the cost of travel is easy – combine forces! If we can present programs at 2 or more locations without having to return to Philadelphia, the travel cost can be divided between all of the locations that book together. Synchronize with your fellow librarians, camp directors, principals, or presidents. Then call us and let us know the dates that work for everyone in your group.  Please be sure to reference the other members of your group to be included in travel discounts.

There is a 3.5% additional charge if you are using a credit card.
