Museum of Discovery’s Kevin Delaney to star in new TV show

Visitors to Little Rock’s Museum of Discovery have long appreciated Kevin Delaney’s special brand of “scientainment.” As the museum’s director of visitor experience, he’s responsible for making sure your kids have a blast hanging out at the museum and marveling at demonstrations wherein he blows things up, sets things aflame, sends things flying and even creates weather. (He also helped develop the Science After Dark adult program, to make sure you have as much fun at MOD as your kids do.)

National audiences came to know Delaney in 2014, when he became the resident science presenter on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” on which he has appeared five times. Now Delaney is taking his scientific magic from segment to series with a new, 30-minute weekly TV show on the Science Channel. “Street Science,” which debuts Wednesday, January 11, will take some of Delaney’s favorite demonstrations to date, along with a host of new ones, and make them larger than life. They’ll also be shot in slow-motion, which will let viewers experience them in a novel and more in-depth way.

The show premieres at 9 p.m. CT on Discovery’s Science Channel. Check your local listings for the channel lineup, and in the meantime, check out the promo:
