When I was six, my parents gave me great advice:
"Make a living doing what you love." The result is businesses that thrive because they are things I love to do.
Science in the Movies is a live performance that reveals how science is used to make movie stunts and special effects. During a thrilling one hour assembly, our team uses Hollywood's ability to get and hold attention, performing six stunts and effects that teach over 100 essential STEM and safety concepts.
The program improves science understanding, which leads to better performance for students and teachers. Schools using this program often achieve 33 percent grade hikes on standardized tests!
Steve also offers professional development sessions, where teachers learn Science in the Movie's engaging classroom techniques that get students excited to learn.
Wolf Stuntworks creates thrilling moments for movies and live events.
In addition to having worked on thousands of movies, television shows, commercials, music videos and live events, we also hold world records for stunts and effects.
