Nutty Scientists of Southeast Michigan is led by our Lead Nutty Scientist Kevin Schlosser (“Professor Potassium” or “Professor K” for short). Kevin has a Masters Degree in Organic Chemistry from University of Virgina and 14 years of experience as a research chemist in the pharmaceutical industry. During that time, he worked with area schools conducting science demos for local students. Those experiences motivated Kevin to start Nutty Scientists here in Michigan in order to inspire the next generation by making science and learning fun and exciting.
Professor Pollen is an Environmental Science student at Eastern Michigan University concentrating on societal studies. She wants to spread the joys our planet offers us and introduce a concept of sustainability with the younger generation. She loves animals, gardening, and hanging out upside-down.
Our “Nutty” Scientists are seriously qualified.
At Nutty Scientists® Southeast Michigan we take great care in selecting our program instructors (who play the part of our Nutty Scientists). These instructors have all completed an intense training program that walked them through each and every detail of our methodology and scientific programs.
Safety first, fun second.
We may be known for our wacky presentations, but we can assure you that the perceived chaos is 100 percent controlled. Our instructors are trained to orchestrate detailed experiments as integral parts of their presentation. What’s more, they know how to work with children, keeping their safety at the forefront.
We never overlook the responsibility that goes along with bringing our instructors into schools and other community meeting areas. From set up to clean up, our instructors are cognizant of every detail.
