Science Friday Live: Presented by KMUW

Saturday, September 9 at The Orpheum Theatre

Doors open at 6:00 p.m., show starts at 7:00 p.m.


Dear Science Teacher,

Hopefully you’ve heard that Ira Flatow is bringing his radio show--Science Friday--to Wichita on September 9 at the Orpheum. With over 1.8 million listeners each week through 374 public radio stations across the United States, we’re absolutely thrilled that he chose our town for this live event.

We started selling tickets to the public on July 1, and the show is nearly sold out. One of our goals, however was to provide a STEM experience for young people in our community, so we’ve reserved a block of 300 seats in the balcony for students of science. Now that school is starting up again, we’d like your help in identifying students who would be interested in attending the show for FREE.

 We do not need you to identify students by name. Instead, simply reply with a number of tickets you’d like to give away to deserving students. You get to decide who. (If you would like to attend the show along with your students, feel free to add yourself to the ticket count – just be aware that you'll be seated in the rear balcony!)

Just reply to this email with the number of tickets you’d like to distribute by August 25 at 5:00 p.m. We will deliver the tickets to you during the week of August 28, or you can pick them up.

 Here are the details for the show if you’d like to gauge interest from your students now:

As I mentioned, we’re reserving a block of seats, so supply is limited. If you find you’ve requested more tickets than are able to attend, we’ll gladly redistribute any unused tickets so that there are no empty seats that night! I hope to hear from you soon!

 Best.
