Savage and Stevens literally can’t wait to unleash their collective sense of wonder, curiosity and fun and they’re inviting everyone to join-in and get their minds messy as their demonstrations leap off the stage. They’re bringing along their crazy toys, incredible tools and mind-blowing demonstrations for a celebration of curiosity that’s an interactive, hands-on, minds-on theatrical experience like no other.

About Adam Savage:
One of the most highly regarded and watched series on Discovery Channel, “MythBusters” ran for 14 earth-shattering years. Co-executive produced and Co-hosted by Savage, the show mixed scientific method with problem solving gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to confirm or bust myths, popular misconceptions and creating its own signature style of explosive experimentation. Today, in addition to creating content for his website Tested.com, Adam has become a proponent for making, working with the White House to encourage kids and adults alike to get their hands dirty. He’s also a regular at conventions across the country, where his elaborate and handmade costumes (such as Totoro at New York Comic Con) attract much attention … and hugs.
About Michael Stevens:
Michaels’ passion for learning, science and making curiosity contagious led him to create Vsauce in 2010. The YouTube channel captures attention with fun questions like, “What Color Is A Mirror?” “Can You Count Past Infinity?” and “Why Are Things Creepy?” Now reaching a collective 17 million subscribers with video views in excess of 2 billion, Vsauce has grown into one of the largest educational networks on the web. Last year, it received the Webby for Best Science and Education Network.
