Our assembly programs typically start at $500 for two shows** each show past the initial two receives a discount off the per show cost. As an example:
2 shows = $500
3 shows = $700
4 shows = $800
5 shows = $975
How we do the shows is totally at the schools discretion. Many schools prefer each grade level get their own presentation. Other schools combine grade levels. We highly encourage grades with life science TEKS to schedule a grade specific show as we will be detailing and reinforcing your in class objectives for you during the assembly.
