Steve Spangler

"Flying Potatoes and Exploding Soda"
How to Take Your Customer Engagement
to the Next Level

Steve Spangler

He's the science teacher you always wanted to have in school. Things just happen to fizz, pop, smoke and explode, and before you know it, you’re a part of his learning experience. His passion is to find the most creative ways to make learning fun. His methods might be unconventional, but the goal is to turn ordinary science experiments into unforgettable learning experiences.

His regular appearances on the Ellen DeGeneres Show have taught viewers how to blow up their food, shock their friends, create mountains of foam and how to turn 2,500 boxes of cornstarch and a garden hose into a swimming pool of fun. Just last month, Steve made it rain film canisters in Ellen's studio using the fizzing power of more than 3,000 Alka-Seltzer tablets.

Steve Spangler is probably best known for teaching millions of people how to turn an ordinary bottle of diet soda and a roll of Mentos into an erupting geyser. Without any warning, this clever trick turned into a three-ring circus of new products, license agreements and viral marketing videos that quickly became a pop-culture sensation… and none of this was ever part of a strategic vision or a written marketing plan. As one of YouTube's original viral videos, this now famous science experiment is just another example of Steve Spangler's ability to create marketing opportunities that result in creative products, enthusiastic customers and high profits.

Whether you're motivating employees, amazing customers or sparking creativity, the name of the game is engagement… and it's the skill that will set you part from everyone else. Steve understands the science behind turning ordinary business transactions into transformational customer experiences that will catapult your business into a new orbit… just watch out for the flying potatoes.
