Students at Greene County and Paton-Churdan were entertained Monday by a stereotypical zany scientist as portrayed by Steve Couch.
Couch performed Rick Eugene Brammer’s “Absolute Science” at Greene County intermediate and elementary schools on Monday, and Brammer was at Paton-Churdan on Tuesday.
With rather Einstein-ish hair and high energy Couch, wearing a lab coat, demonstrated the refraction of light waves, static electricity with a Van de Graaff generator, and chemical reactions. His show was intended to promote the 2017 children’s summer reading program theme of “Build a Better World.”
“Absolute Science” was sponsored for Greene County children by the Jefferson, Grand Junction, Rippey, and Marchant Memorial (Scranton) librariesÂ and the Jefferson Kiwanis club. Sponsors for the Paton-Churdan show were the public libraries in Churdan and Paton, Community State Bank of Paton, and United Bank of Iowa- Churdan.
