The Mobius Extreme Science Show is something really special. Mobius has pulled out all the stops to give audiences at the Bing one of the most exciting shows they've ever seen.

If you want to spend your evening laughing and learning thanks to a couple of crazy science dudes, look no further. Just remember: don't try this at home!

Mobius's science demo shows have been a staple of the Spokane city and county libraries for the past two years and have been performed at schools across the Inland Northwest.

The show promises to be educational, exciting, and very entertaining. Between the two of them, Aaron and Don have over 20 years' experience on the stage and they know how to get a crowd laughing.

Ticketswest has your seats at or 800-325-SEAT, and they are only $8.
