The Steps to Imagine:Writing & Science the Toymaker Way


How is the writing process like building a toy? What is “centripetal force?” And how do you balance a clothespin on the tip of your nose?

Answers to these and other mysteries are revealed in a magical program created and performed by Rick Hartman—master toymaker, storyteller, and author of The Making of Superpin: Wonder and Joy in a Homemade Toy.

Following a hilarious, rhyming recitation of his book, Rick brings the writing process and scientific method alive in a “step-by-step” demonstration students and teachers will cheer.

Poetry, science, invention and surprise swirl in this memorable performance by one of the Northwest’s leading educational entertainers. For booking information, contact Rick.
