Did you know that before Smarty Pants embarked on his career as a school assembly presenter, he was a professional geologist? It’s true! After receiving his degree from Columbia University of New York City, Smarty Pants worked at the prestigious Lamont-Doherty Observatory, located in the beautiful Palisades outside New York City.
Years later, Smarty Pants now combines his passions for science and innovative balloon constructions with the Mousetrap Machine Show. This science assembly teaches elementary school students how simple machines work – it’s the only science show in Illinois that ties directly into the state curriculum!
