Excite some electrons as you construct circuits during this program all about electricity! Test various materials for conductivity with plasma balls. Finally, create and play an electronic game!
Recreate the process of rock formation and devise ways to identify and classify rocks and minerals. Experience the thrill of panning for gems in this hands-on class that really rocks!
Black and Blue Oceans
Students will devise and test oil spill techniques in a mock oil spill and learn all about the pollution that plagues the oceans.
Matter of Fact
Investigate the ingredients of the universe - atoms, molecules, elements and compounds! Students will build molecules, and mix chemicals as they discuss physical and chemical changes and the three states of matter.
This workshop provides an introduction to the chemical processes in a plant, plant respiration, and the role of plants in food webs. Students will discuss the different types of plants, their leaves and the products they produce.
Students will learn about the interconnections that exist between all living things in an ecosystem, including humans. The nature cycles, food chains, and energy webs within different environments are explored.
Students explore the difference between chemical and physical reaction. They'll see Styrofoam disappear before their eyes, and witness the chemical magic of water turning into "juice." Students will explore the amazing properties of magic mud!
