Life Science Based Workshops

Seeking Our Senses (most appropriate for grades K-1)
Sniff out the science of your five senses and explore the world around us as you l
earn to be a sense-ative person! Test your vision with our mind-boggling illusions. Use your hearing for fun and games. Put your fingers to the test with our Braille cards, and tease your tongue with our very own taste test.

Dinosaurs (most appropriate for grades K-2)
elve into paleontology as we join a dinosaur excavation. Examine real fossil casts to see the differences in the teeth of herbivorous and carnivorous dinosaurs. Students will participate in a mini dinosaur excavation!

Life In The Sea (most appropriate for grades K-2)
What is life like under the ocean's surface? What kind of animals and plants are found in the sea? Examine and investigate starfish, sea urchins and shells. Learn about buoyancy and adaptation. Make your own Cartesian diver, and find out what humans must do in order to explore the deep, dark depths of our planet's oceans.

Decomposers-The World of Worms (most appropriate for grades K-2)
Introduce yourself to fungi, mushrooms, and our favorite decomposer- the worm! Discover the role that worms play in our ecosystem and plant growth. Learn how they eat, see, move, and help people recycle. Then build your own worm world (complete with a live worm to take home).Bugs! (most appropriate for grades K-3)
Engross yourself in entomology! Inspect authentic insect specimens. Update your insect anatomy know-how. Match-up insects with their habitats. Get bug-eyed with the Insect-A-Vision kit™.

Walloping Weather (most appropriate for grades K-5)
Get weather-wise. Uncover the reason for seasons. Create three-day weather forecasts. Stage a statically-charged indoor storm. Spot the sun’s invisible UV rays with the Sun Beads™ kit.

All About Animals (most appropriate for grades K-5)

Earth Awareness (most appropriate for grades K-5)
Get to know the planet earth and see how important conservation is. design and create your own water filtration systems and then harness solar power to create a work of art you can keep.

The Science of Sport (most appropriate for grades K-5)
Ever consider how important science is in sports? We’ll demonstrate the physics of athletics and use the scientific method to create our own version of protective gear.

Earthworks (most appropriate for grades 3-5)
Dig into Earth Science! Uncover rock samples and discover how they formed. Inspect fluorescing minerals. Model the moving plates that cause bends and breaks. See how sediment stacks with the Experi-tube ™.

Black & Blue Oceans (most appropriate for grades 3-5)
Simulate the effects of an ocean oil spill, and develop creative techniques to clean it up! Create your own Rescue Diver™ while learning about water, waves, and the environment.
