Description

Under Pressure - Join Bernoulli and Newton as we take this exciting look at the science behind aerodynamics and the properties of air…under pressure. Use a vortex generator to create air pockets with a punch, and levitate ping-pong balls in defiance of gravity.


“Current” Events - Take a tour on the electron freeway! Conductors, insulators, transistors, and other elements in the world of circuit electricity introduce themselves to you via the tingle in your fingertips and the twinkle in your eye.


“Fun”-damental Forces” - Gravity…Inertia…Centripetal force…who could ever imagine that an introduction to physics could be so much fun? We’ll experience these awesome forces for ourselves and build some cool devices to watch them at work.


Science of Magic - Magic? No…it’s science! You’ll learn the secrets behind famous magic that you can recreate for yourself! Mother nature has some tricks of her own, and we’d like to show you what’s up her sleeve.


Fantastic Flyers - The Wright Brothers would be proud as we follow in their footsteps and learn the fundamental principles of flight. Build a “football” glider, control surfaces and your very own loop-flying stunt plane. You’ll be a Top Gun after this class.


Super Structures - Discover the strengths of triangles, cylinders and arches. Learn how combinations of these shapes make for sturdy homes and skyscrapers! Use teamwork to build your own super structures as well as an earthquake-proof building.
