We'll learn about the tools scientists use in their laboratories, as well as atoms, molecules and reactions, acids and bases, fluorescence, and phosphorescence. We'll also examine and investigate super sticky things by exploring suction, hydrogen bonding and static cling. We'll also see some very cool dry ice demonstrations! Continue the science at home with fun labware take-homes and experiments.
Children overcome a series of challenges using basic materials, simple machines, tips from famous inventors, and most importantly, their minds. With a bit of ingenuity, they create catapults and forts, construct working light sticks, and assemble a set of circuits with batteries and light bulbs.
ENERGY, FORCES, & FLIGHT
Explore inertia, gravity and centripetal force with race cars and spinning bike wheels, ping-pong balls, and rubber band powered catapults. Learn about tension and compression, which shapes are strongest, make an earthquake proof building from toothpicks and marshmallows. Learn about flight and build the coolest paper airplanes!
