Stuntman explains to Vermilion Parish students how science and movies go together

Stuntman Steve Wolf shows elementary students at LeBlanc Elementary how using pulleys makes it easier to lift someone like LeBlanc Elementary teacher Leah Trahan. Holding her up are students Seth Noegel, Blake Henson, Reed Guarino and Phillip Summers. Wolf then gives the rope to Regan Granger, the girl in the white shirt, so she can hold up the teacher by herself thanks to pulleys.

Sometimes Steve Wolf gets blown up or is set on fire. But he claims his job is not really dangerous at all. He works as a stuntman and a special-effects expert for movies and television.
