FUN, ENTERTAINING AND EDUCATIONAL! The perfect show enjoyed by all ages, which includes:

  • Interactive demonstration of the spinning arts of yo-yo, spin top and diabolo
  • "Getting started" yo-yoing tips
  • Introduction to the physics of spin
  • Optional hands-on yo-yo lessons depending on space and number of participants

Program runs 30-60 minutes depending on your needs. Ideal for Youth, Teen, Adult and Family Programming. Yo-Yos are also available to purchase as prizes or as part of youth and teen programming. Science of Spin' is also a favorite among school librarians for their End of the Year Reading Achievement events.

Val's 'Science of Spin' show has been a favorite among library performances and patrons frequently request her return. Her reliability as well as her humor and natural ability to interact with children of all ages makes her asset to any library program. Yo-Yoing and top spinning since she was 6 years old, Val holds several state, national and world titles, as well as being the 2004 recipient of the Linda Sengpiel Award for Yo-Yo Excellence. She attends and frequently judges at the National and World Yo-Yo and Spin Top Championships each year.

Excellent Performer

Val is very professional and entertaining while explains the science of spin interacting with the yoyo. She gives maximum effort during her performance. Adults and children remained engaged during the performance. She is self contained with the set up and breakdown of equipment. We look forward to having her return in 2018!

Amazing Show! Perfect for Summer Reading Program!

Val Oliver puts on a wonderful and entertaining show! She is very talented! The Spin of Science show was not only fun and entertaining for the kids, but educational as well. She did a great job of teaching the science behind yo-yo's and gave great basic instructions for how to get started yo-yoing. Val interacted with the audience. She was nice, funny, entertaining, and VERY talented! It was a great show and addition to our Summer Reading Program!

Amazing talent!

We have had Val several times at the library for our Summer program. She always is a big hit with the kids and her talent is amazing with yo yo and spinning tops. I highly recommend her. I hate that we have to limit her time!

A super show!

Val did a great job with both the show and her class. The kids were engaged AND learning basic physics at the same time. We will definitely have her again!
