Body Basics

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.

Dinosaurs

Kids examine fossil casts and explore the differences in the teeth of herbivorous and carnivorous dinosaurs. Students participate in a mini dinosaur excavation and make a cast of a dinosaur tooth to take home.

Ecosystems Exploration

Kids investigate the interconnections present in nature. They build ecosystem models, explore the elements of energy webs, reflect on how humans impact ecosystems, and use field journals for everyday explorations, and more.

Photosynthesis

This workshop provides kids with an introduction to photosynthesis, including an understanding of the chemical processes at work in plants, plant respiration, and the role of plants in food webs.

Matter of Fact

Kids explore molecules and the forces that hold atoms together. They see the dramatic differences between physical and chemical changes, as they mix up a batch of their very own Mad Science Putty to take home.

Electricity

Kids 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 create and play a buzz-making electric game.

Mineral Mania

Kids 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.

Black and Blue Oceans

Kids 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.

Bugs!

Children get engrossed in entomology! They sort through creepy-crawly arthropods and inspect real insect specimens, then dig deeper into the life of a bug with habitat puzzles, bug-eyed goggles, and insect defense demonstrations.

Fundamental Forces

Find out about forces that make us move by experimenting with gravity, centripetal force, and inertia. Kids spin, balance, push and pull to see how physics affects everything they do.

Cells

Students learn about cells from the inside out by looking at onion cells under a microscope, putting together organelle puzzles, and working as a team in a protein-building competition.

Scientific Method

This workshop studies the common methodology used by scientists to formulate questions, make predictions, develop and perform experiments, collect and analyze data and draw conclusion. Students will also discuss the implications of science in society and investigate how their conclusions could impact the world around them.
