Add Workshops & Experiences to enhance your epic group science adventure!

 

Ages 5 and Younger

Pre-School Experiences (25-30 minutes)

Magnets Jr.

Compare magnetic and non-magnetic objects, explore the forces of magnetism using familiar materials, and learn about different types of magnets!

Fee: $1.00/student

Biospheres Jr.

What does all life need to survive? Plant a seed and learn the answer during this eye-opening experience! Plus, each learner brings home his or her own biosphere!

Fee: $2.00/student

Numbers!

Go beyond counting and explore numbers and predictions in science. Estimate, mix, and learn about numbers that help us measure liquids and solids!

Ages 5 and Older

Science Experiences (25-30 min.)

Circuit Builders

Alter the path of an electron, explore power sources, and investigate the difference between series and parallel circuit with Snap Circuits! Learners will use the four components of any circuit to test and experiment in this exploratory workshop!

Fee: $1.00/student

Light

Explore the fascinating world of light! Identify various sources of light and explore the concepts of reflection and refraction with hands-on experimentation!

Fee: $2.00/student

Slime

Discover how molecules interact in solids, liquids, and gasses demonstrating physical and chemical changes before your eyes while making your own bag of slime!

Fee: $2.00/student

Static Electricity (Only available September – April annually)

Experiment with static electricity and explore conductors, insulators, circuits, currents, and more with our Van de Graaff generator in a shocking and hair-raising experience!

Fee: $1.00/student

 

In-Depth Science Workshops (30-45 min.)

Tectonic Plates & Landforms

Get hands-on with tectonic plates! Explore how their movement affects Earth's many landforms. Learners  will then make models of these diverse landforms, from mountains to plains to valleys.

Fee: $3.00/student            Grades: 3 & up

Biospheres

Build on your physical science lessons with an exploration of plants, photosynthesis, and carbon and water cycles by creating your own self-contained biome!

Fee: $2.00/student           Grades: All

Force & Motion

Gain a deeper understanding of motion, speed, acceleration, gravity, and force through a challenge that puts students in control of the variables to test, manipulate, and measure results!

Fee: $1.00/student           Grades: All

Engineering Design Challenge

Engage in the design process and experiment with iterations of a device you create to achieve maximum success in an engineering challenge!

Fee: $3.00/student           Grades: K-2 (sailboats), 3-5 (invasive species)

Paper Circuits Workshop

Explore complexities of switches and paths of electricity while creating your own unique paper circuit.

Fee: $3.00/student           Grades: 3 & up
