Brandon’s presentation during our freshman orientation was a great way to start the year! It was full of fun stories that had meaningful lessons incorporated into them. Our kids were cheering and laughing and having a great time while being motivated and encouraged to have a positive high school career.

Brandon has a natural gift of relating to students on any level.  He is passionate and dynamic in his delivery.  Brandon used a great mix of humor and sincerity to bring a very moving and effective message.  If your school or organization is looking for someone current and dynamic to inspire and motivate others, Brandon Lee White is the guy!

Brandon’s ‘Step In Step Out’ dance instruction and ‘Let It Move’ workshops were a sensational hit! Brandon led the whole group on a fun, positive, educational, and truly ‘moving’ leadership experience. He set the tone for the balance of the weekend. What Brandon brings is inclusive, engaging, and entertaining, while at the same time substantive, thought-provoking, and real.

Wow! What an amazing speaker we found in Brandon Lee White. Brandon spoke to the student council members as if he were one of them. He received a standing ovation! Brandon related to the students on levels I have rarely seen speakers connect with in the past 14 years as a student council advisor. He connected with kids throughout the day not just during his program. It was great to hear a young man give advice on making a difference and how everyone can do something. I have gotten several rave reviews from students and advisors alike as well as our administration for his presentation. If you get the chance to book Brandon at your school it will be well worth the experience he will share with your youth.

Brandon Lee White came to our middle school and did two breakout session with students as part of our wellness day.  He then addressed our entire student body for 60 minutes with a motivational message on courage and showing that anything is possible.  Our students were completely engaged and open to Brandon's message and delivery style.  Staff commented that he has been one of the best, if not the best, motivational speaker we have asked to address our middle school students.

In 29 years of working in the public schools, I don’t think I’ve ever attended an assembly that was so worthwhile and so relevant to my students’ issues.
Barbara La Rowe, Speech Pathologist
Madison Elementary School

This assembly was outstanding. As a presenter, he adjusted the depth of his topics according to what the kids could handle, and what they were interested in hearing. He did a fantastic job of getting our students excited about science and math. His visuals and stories kept every kid in the gym focused on him. I know of several kids in our school who have already purchased mini-robots after this assembly. We were very impressed. Thank you for making science so fun!

The program was more than I expected. Not only did the presenter dress professionally and arrive on time, but he was able to educate the children from K-6 with his screen show and robots. He was funny, used the microphones for emphasis, and delighted the kids and teachers! We loved his small robots that interacted with the kids and could open up their minds to a world of robotics. It was such a great assembly we were hearing about it for days. We hope to have him back for part 2 next year!!

Jack Burrus was EXCELLENT! His ability to present math and science concepts through the World of Robotics not only held the attention of our K-4th graders, but also had them "ooing" & "ahhing" and laughing throughout the presentation. Then, his presentation for our 5-8th graders truly brought an awareness of how robots are used today. The knowledge and direction Jack presented to our older students really gave them insight into what is happening in the world around us and the possibilities that are yet to come. What a great tie into math and science!

Please convey our appreciation to Mr. Jack Burrus and Academic Entertainment for his excellent programs at Freedom Elementary today! The students were excited to learn about robotics and see actual demonstrations. Mr. Burrus kept the students involved, interested, and thrilled with the robotic “tricks”. We also appreciated how he connected his presentation to what the students have learned in class this year and how it will impact learning and careers in the future. We feel very fortunate to have had this presentation at Freedom!  Thank you!

Jack Burrus was great with the students. He tailored the presentations to their age levels and academic abilities. The students were very intrigued by all of the robots he brought and demonstrated. He was very patient about answering questions and did a good job getting the students engaged in the presentation. He was on-time, did not rush the presentations, and was very pleasant to work with. The students are already asking if he can come back next year!

Mr. Jack Burrus did an excellent job of entertaining and teaching our students about technology, robotics, and how math, science, and reading connect to the real world and jobs now and in the future. The students loved the robot demonstrations!

Jack Burrus was a wonderful presenter! Students and faculty alike enjoyed his presentation very much.  He was so great we are thinking of having him back again next year.
We had a very positive first experience with Academic Entertainment and will definitely consider booking through you again, for Jack's program and others.

The students and staff loved the show; even our kindergarten students remained focussed for the entire resentation. One first grade class made robot valentine boxes. I would highly recommend this for schools trying to show students the implications and applications of technology for the 21st century.

Excellent, excellent and many thanks for a well done learning experience. The presenter had every child (K-6) in the palm of his hand.  They were so excited and loved every single minute of his presentation...and learned as they went along.  Thanks so very much for such a good "show" that maximized each moment for learning and fun.
