General Presentation Comments

My suggestions on the auditorium show would be that those showing the experiments make sure they announce what they're doing at all times and have it set up so that all of the audience can actually see what they're doing. They just about got it with the camera - but I think there's some room for improvement on how to set up the tables for better audience viewing. Also, I mentioned the idea of stating an appropriate age level on the signage/fliers for the show. Maybe if something was going on for the younger set at the same time (maybe the storytime idea in the classroom?), it would help parents who need to split up.
