The Cabinet of Scientific Curiosities

The Mystery of the Hundred Cabinets

The mysterious cabinet opens to reveal an assortment of hidden experiments and curiosities, which are demonstrated by Steve Lechner in this inspiring presentation.

Stephen Lechner introduces his unusual “Cabinet of Curiosities” which, as he explains to the audience, mysteriously appeared on his doorstep one day with a note: “Please look after this cabinet, it is filled with all the dreams and inventions I have been working on since I was a baby.” Steve proceeds to open the doors on the cabinet, each one revealing an object or experiment that imparts a science lesson. “Mysteries” in the box include such items as the Mysterious Bouncing Ball, the Laughing Cup, the Color­Changing Mystery, the Magical Appearing Snow, the Dancing Monkeys, the Traveling Sand­Bugs, the Anti­Gravity Spray, and more. The program will include audience participation and a lot of funny business as each mystery is revealed.
