Physics Based Workshops

Magnetic Magic (most appropriate for grades K-2)
Explore the power of magnets. Create electromagnets and control a compass needle. See a magnetic accelerator in action. Grab a Magnet Lab™ for some at-home research.

Sonic Sounds (most appropriate for grades K-2)
Uncover the source of sound. Tap into sound waves and fill your ears with vibrations. Create sound effects and change the pitch of your voice. Use your Sonic Horn™ to make some noise.

“Watts” Up! (most appropriate for grades K-5)
Charge up on static electricity. Make indoor lightning and conduct hair-raising experiments with an electro-static generator. Use your Static Stick™ on electrons at home.

Under Pressure (most appropriate for grades K-5)
Join Bernoulli as we take an exciting look at the science behind air pressure. Create a vortex with an Airzooka, and make pucks and balls levitate with air pressure! Launch foam rockets with the Air Blaster™.

Optical Illusions (most appropriate for grades K-5)
Work against your eyes. Trick your brain with lines and coils. Discover how mirrors and their reflections can play tricks on what you see. Make a periscope to see above and beyond.

Super Structures (most appropriate for grades K-5)
Act like junior architects and engineers! Discover the hidden strength of triangles, arches and cylinders. Use combinations of shapes to build your own super-structure! Construct a structure from scratch with the Bridge Basics™ kit.

Harnessing Heat (most appropriate for grades K-5)
Take-on temperature. Build a thermometer and heat things up with friction. Feel how hot and cold can change at a touch. Apply your red-hot knowledge to your Heat Sheet™.

Lights...Color... Action! (most appropriate for grades K-5)
Catch some cool colors. Make a rainbow out of white light. Split your name with ink and reveal numbers with color filters. Color the world with the Technicolor Blender™.

Fun-damental Forces (most appropriate for grades K-5)
What do gravity, inertia, and centripetal force have in common? They are all part of the fun in this introduction to physics. Feel the pull of precession with the bike wheel gyroscope, and strike the perfect balance with the Gravity Game ™.

Science of Magic (most appropriate for grades K-5)
Learn the science behind illusions, read minds, and perform a Houdini-style escape! Amaze and amuse friends and family with the Curious Cube™. It’s not magic—it’s science!

Movie Effects (most appropriate for grades K-5)
Discover why science is the real star on the big screen. Create cool sound effects. Toy with 3-D technology. Make motion pictures come alive. Sketch a short feature in the Cartoon Creator™ flipbook.

Science of Toys (most appropriate for grades K-5)
What makes toys work? Move out of the way for motorized toys. Take a spin with kinetic tops. Balance a bird to reveal its center of gravity. A twist of the wrist sets your Yo-Yo spinning!

Energy Burst! (most appropriate for grades K-3)
Explore the energy of motion (potential versus kinetic energy), and how energy can be conserved. Launch the Mad Science Spring Thing™  to help learn all about energy — and shock your friends.

Great Gravity (most appropriate for grades K-3)
Children will have the opportunity to learn more about the force of gravity in this class. They will conduct hands on experiments that will provide the opportunity to explore the force of gravity, the center of gravity and even to defy gravity.

Science of Art (most appropriate for grades K-3)
Get your left and right brains working together and discover the links between science and art. Mix and separate colors, uncover art forgeries, investigate friction. Discover that science is an important part of art, and get your own pair of rainbow diffraction glasses to take home.

Current Events (most appropriate for grades 3-5)
Take a tour on the electron freeway! Investigate conductors, insulators, and other elements in the world of circuit electricity. Get turned on to science and technology with the Circuit Maze™.

Moving Motion (most appropriate for grades 3-5)
Learn all about the forces behind the movement of planes, trains and automobiles. Students will perform a series of experiments to learn more about friction, inertia, and other forces that affect the way things move. Throughout the class the children will add to their very own take home inertia kit to continue experimenting at home.
