Our Preschool Workshop Themes
This workshop introduces preschoolers to the exciting world of color. They make a new friend while learning about the colors of the rainbow and experiment with their creative side during an activity on color mixing. Demonstrations are conducted to introduce students to the primary colors, as well as color mixing.
Wiggly World of Worms
This workshop provides preschoolers with an opportunity to get their hands dirty while learning all about worms. They work with magnifying glasses to get an up-close look at the lives and habits of worms.
This workshop introduces kids to the science behind the sounds all around them. Kids experiment with a wave motion model and a twirling tube to help them understand that sound travels in waves and can be heard in a variety of pitches. They also learn about the everyday materials that make a variety of special effects noises in the movies and create their own special effects sounds.
Adventures in Air
Preschoolers learn that even though air is invisible it is all around them, all the time. They also learn that air has the power to move items and to slow them down. They experiment with a variety of items that rely on the air to help them move.
Digging for Dinosaurs
Kids are introduced to the differences between meat-eating and plant-eating animals. They have the opportunity to look at some dinosaur teeth up close and work as paleontologists, by participating in a mini dinosaur dig that engages their attention and helps them improve their scientific knowledge.
Preschoolers help create a cloud in a bottle and make it rain inside. They also learn all about the water cycle and weather patterns, and design their very own windsock to take home.
Water is more complicated than it looks and through this exciting workshop children learn all about the different properties of water. They experiment with floating, sinking, absorption, and so much more.
Children become an animal, identify animal sounds, and learn all about animal babies and parents.
Children experience the poles and power of magnets in this hands-on workshop that provides them with the opportunity to make their own magnet to take home.
Take your class on a trip through the solar system and sign them up for the Mad Science Astronaut in Training Program, where they will learn all about the elements of space. Students will even get to take their very own mini rocket home.
Energy & Motion
Kids explore the concept of energy and how it gets things moving. Toys are used to help explain simple energy ideas and capture preschoolers' attention. They also get to take home toys called “Boinks” that demonstrate how energy and motion are related.
Children learn all about their fine feathered friends when they take an up-close look at birds. They discover how to match bird mates, see what eggs are produced by which species, learn how a bird's beak is a tool, and how to identify different birds' songs. They take home bird warblers to practice their bird songs at home.
Let's Look Closely
Children discover a world that they might not have realized was there, through the use of mirrors, microscopes, and magnifying glasses. They reveal hidden pictures, learn about reflection and symmetry, and use handheld microscopes to observe objects closely. They take away plastic magnifying glasses to continue their exploration at home.
Sea, Sand & Surf
Children explore the science of the sea and learn about what sand is made from, how shells are used by animals for protection, and what animals live in the ocean. They make their own ocean bottle to take home.
