“I was working a Camp-In at the Franklin Institute and we had made it through the evening portion just fine. However, our theater operator didn’t show up in the morning. Ogan, one of the assistant managers, and I ended up improvising a twenty minute science show complete with liquid nitrogen, multi-colored flames, a couple of explosions, and more. Although we only had about five minutes of prep time, no script, and a couple of hours of sleep on a marble floor to go on, the guests walked away happy and raving about the show!”
– Patrick Wittwer, Manager of Visitor Services at Please Touch Museum
