Trapped by a crazy space scientist, they must risk everything to rescue the aliens and get them back to their ship — before it’s too late!

            Throughout the intergalactic story, volunteers from the audience will get to discover the unbelievable world of science through experiments and demonstrations with chemical reactions, polymers, pressure, inertia, energy, explosions, and so much more! Don’t miss this action-packed and educational alien adventure. It’s totally out of this world! Our program content addresses Next Generation Science Standards PS1 & PS2.

Jonathan is the author of Toto the Tornado Kitten! Jonathan will read his book, and will bring copies to sign and sell. All proceeds go to local animal rescue groups! He also brings Toto and all the kids get to pet him! 

            Jonathan is a paramedic and rescued a kitten after a tornado tore through Brimfield a few years ago. He adopted the kitten, wrote a book about him, and now brings Toto to libraries around the state. While Jonathan reads, Toto sits beside him in a chair. Every child, who wants to, gets to pat Toto before they leave. Jonathan has two books available at a cost of $10 each and he inscribes each one very personally and endearingly.
