St. Martinville Primary boosting test scores through science education

ST. MARTINVILLE, La. (KLFY) It was an exciting and educational day for students at St. Martinville Primary.

That’s because a Hollywood stuntman visited the school to demonstrate the secret science behind movie stunts & special effects while teaching science and safety to students.

Stunts included: dont try this at home, stop, drop and roll, properties of matter, exploding flower pots and dangling a school teacher in the air.

Stunt & Special Effects Coordinator Steve Wolf revealed how simple science is used to create the spectacular feats.

Statistics show that this science in the movies show is raising standardized science test scores, and that students who see the show score up to 33 percent higher on their physical science scores than students at neighboring schools that don’t see the program.
