Hi, I'm Steve Tomecek, a.k.a. "The Dirtmeister." I'm a working geologist and director of Science Plus, Inc., a company dedicated to making science fun and exciting for both kids and adults. Not only can you find me here on the Scholastic Web site, but many of you can see me starring in my own Emmy Award-winning PBS television series called "Dr. Dad's Phantastic Physical Phenomena." For those of you in the New York City area, I can be heard on Sunday nights doing my science thing on "New York Kids," a live radio call-in show broadcast on WNYC-AM (820 AM).
In addition to being a scientist and media personality, I've written a bunch of books including Bouncing and Bending Light and Simple Attractions. My latest book is called Wing It! and it comes with its very own boomerang. If you want to find out more about the Dirtmeister and how I can visit your school, you can drop me a line at:
