Doktor Kaboom

Doktor Kaboom is having trouble picking his favorite science demonstrations, so he's bringing them all!  Unfortunately, there are way too many to do them all in one show.  The solution:  The Wheel of Science!  Will we turn a water bottle into a rocket or catapult bananas across the stage?  Electrocute a pickle or create artificial gravity?  Who knows?  No two shows will be the same.  So, step right up, and let's spin that wheel!
