"Jason's programs allowed all students to take ownership of their learning and add to their knowledge through experience. Jason had phenomenal classroom management and allowed for the active participation of every student throughout the program. Everyone was engaged throughout the presentation with his hands-on learning activities."
- Sarah Hatton | Principal
"The students were amazed at the great science Jason shared in our afterschool program. The staff was amazed at what great "crowd control" Jason exhibited. His passion for all things science shines! We all loved how engaged and hands-on the activities were, as well as impressed with how well Jason worked with our students. Thank you for providing such a great service to this country's kids!"
- Dana Harmon | 21st CCLC Director
"Jason Lindsey fascinates even the most reluctant learner with his high-octane science fun! He takes students’ interest to a whole new level by introducing high level concepts. Jason’s Hooked on Science program is an exciting hands-on extravaganza for students of all ages!"
- Alecia Ladd | Educator
"Jason Lindsey and his Hooked on Science presentation to our middle school students was engaging and informative. His interaction with the students was effective and right on grade level, touching on many topics that not only addressed current grade level standards, but were real-world relevant. After the assemblies many students as well as faculty members remarked that it had been the best assembly we ever had! We look forward to having him return again in the future."
- Dr. Cindy Thompson | Educator
"Jason and his wonderful Hooked on Science programs have become a staple of our summer reading programming. His ability to engage children and educate them through hands-on activities is truly outstanding. I also appreciate his professionalism. I know when I schedule a program with him, he will be on time and totally prepared for an excellent program. The fact that we have waiting lists for his programs says it all."
- Toy Lancaster | Children's Librarian
"Jason Lindsey with Hooked on Science did an amazing job of keeping both the students and staff engaged in science. With the loss of science instruction time during the day, it is refreshing to have a presenter who has a great amount of knowledge and passion for science. We loved the presentation and would welcome him back next school year!!"
- Heather A. Richard | 21st CLCC Program Director
"Jason has opened a world for even the youngest children. One of my children was a challenge, always in trouble due to some family issues until science "turned on the light bulb" so to speak. He now wants to be just like the science guy, is excelling in Kindergarten, and is curious about the discovery of the world again. Thank you to the television program and especially to the online newsletters, bringing science back as a fun way to explore the universe and daily occurrences!"
