Description

Radical Robots - Get wrapped up in the world of robotics. Learn how robots make our lives easier. See how science and technology go hand in hand by building a robotic hand that you can manipulate at home.

Energy Burst! - Explore the energy of motion (potential versus kinetic energy), and how energy can be conserved. Spring into action with poppers, boinks, and jumping frogs. Build your own catapult to take home.

Mix It Up - Shake up the idea of water and solutions. Pick up concepts of physical mixtures, solutions, and suspensions as you clarify water and separate mixtures. Take home your own Super Sorter!

Moving Motion - Catapult into Newton’s three laws of motion! Perform hands-on experiments to investigate friction, inertia, motion and forces. Twirl into action with the Newton Spinner and continue the fun at home.

Life in the Sea - What is life like under the ocean’s surface? What kind of animals and plants are found in the sea? Examine and investigate starfish, sea urchins and other sea creatures. Learn about buoyancy and adaptation.

All About Animals - Feathers, fins, fur and more! Join us for activities exploring classification, camouflage, and animal life cycles. Our scientists study the diversity of animals on earth. Step into the shoes of a naturalist and create your own casts of animal tracks to take home.
Get Connected - Take a trip on the communication highway as you set up telephone networks, wind through a cell tower relay, and learn how to track cell phone users. Junior scientists will show off their telecommunication knowledge with a worldwide fiber optic Wired World take-home.
Super Power Sources - Embark on a quest for alternative energy sources. Harness the sun’s heat with a parabolic mirror and ramp up a power generation station. Tight teamwork turns on solar devices and a united breath of air runs a fan-powered light bulb. Take home Crank’n Shine, your own handcrank flashlight.
