Our Elementary-Level Workshop Themes
All About Animals
Discover the unique features of animals by examining teeth, claws and fur. Students will explore ways in which animals adapt to the challenging elements of their environment. Make your own animal tracks to take home!
Black and Blue Oceans
Students devise and test techniques to handle the aftermath of an oil spill, in an oil spill simulation, and discuss how to clean up and prevent the pollution that plagues our oceans.
Kids study the science of their insides by learning about the major systems of the human body. They learn about how their food is digested, how their blood flows through their bodies, and how their brain controls all of these parts.
Dry Ice Capades
Manipulate matter in all of its three states! Melt metal in boiling water and freeze water with just a breath of dry ice! Use your Thermocolor Cup™ to test the temperature of liquid matter in your home!
Electricity & Lasers
Students excite electrons as they construct some serious circuits during this program all about electricity. They test various materials for conductivity with space-age plasma balls. Finally, they play a game of laser limbo and have a laser dance party!
Kids discover the invisible fields surrounding magnets with our iron filings. They devise and perform experiments to test magnetic strength.
Students recreate the process of rock formation and devise ways to identify and classify rocks and minerals. They experience the thrill of panning for gems; the gems they find, they can take home for further study and investigation.
Learn all about the forces behind the movement of planes, trains and automobiles. Perform a series of experiments to learn more about friction, inertia, and other forces that affect the way things move. Build your very own inertia kit to continue experimenting at home. Let’s get moving!
pH Phactor Slide down the colorful pH scale and dip into the world of acids and bases! Explore the extremes of pH with your Reaction Tube™ in what is sure to be a stopper-popping experience! Discover whether liquids found in your home are acids or bases with your very own pH tester!
Ooze into a gooey hour of sliming around! Create slime using the Mad Science recipe, and then enter your creation in the Slime Olympics! Take home your own concoction of Mad Science Slime!
Super Power Sources
Discover the science behind renewable energy resources – the power of the future. Create an amazing sunspot with solar power, follow the flow of electrons through a turbine, create wind energy and experiment with a car powered by water? Power a flashlight with your own hand.
Kids put on their lab coats and stick out their tongues, as they discover the delicious biology behind their taste buds.
