" The students are engaged, motivated and learn so much from Jerry’s presentations."
    Ms. Evy Bickel - 6th Grade Mathematics Teacher  / Ladue Middle School, St. Louis, MO

(Ms. Evy bickel has invited the Science of the Superhero Assembly back for seven years in a row and number eight is just around the corner!) 

 

"While I had read a few reviews about Mr. DeCaire’s performance online, I was not expecting the robust performance that he would give to our students. Having researched and hired a variety of different enriching programs for our students in the last several years, I can honestly say that Mr. DeCaire’s “Science of the Superhero” was the most entertaining and educational that we have had…and that is truly saying something as most of these programs are top-notch. Mr. DeCaire had a great command of the group, a wonderful sense of humor and relevant information to share with the students. In my experience, it is difficult to find an artist who is both as talented artistically as Mr. DeCaire as well as one who so easily interacts with the students and parents alike."

"Congratulations on taking your program 'in-house.' Your


presentation is STILL (four months later) being


talked about by the students who saw it, so you definitely made an

 
impression. And we would love to


book the program for our 1st-4th graders next year."

"Mr. DeCaire’s ability to share and discuss his talents and experiences while constantly drawing popular comic book heroes for the students, left them mesmerized and eager to apply their new knowledge to their own drawings! His injections of humor and honesty about comic book art and the life of an illustrator kept the students at ease and having a good time. ”

Jerry had all of the students on the edge of their seats with excitement as they watched him create a superhero while explaining the math and geometry he was using to create his art. They were thrilled to be given copies of the drawings he made that day. It was a great opportunity for them to see how the subjects they are learning in the classroom are applied in the 'real world.'

This program enhanced vocabulary. Students saw the importance of perspective, proportion, and a knowledge of anatomy. Jerry, the presenter, also introduced them to the profession of a comic book artist. It was an excellent presentation. Students were abuzz about the topic and skills Jerry demonstrated. It was a refreshing, fun, and educational program that drew the students in.
