STEM and Engineering Based Workshops

“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.

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.

Radical Robots (most appropriate for grades K-5)
Build your very own robot hand to take home in this class that focus on technology. Explore how robots can be used to make our lives easier. Experiment with robots that can do some extraordinary tasks, infrared robots, robotic arms and even soccer playing robots.

Invention-ation (most appropriate for grades K-5)
Who made up the light bulb? Why is Rube Goldberg making things so difficult? Students are encouraged to be the most common type of scientist-an inventor, as they delve into the importance of the scientific method and create their own crazy inventions!

Mad Machines (most appropriate for grades K-5)
See how simple machines lighten your load! Launch with levers, secure with screws, and work with wedges. Use pulleys to move heavy objects with ease. Wind-up the Drag Racer™ for some zooming action.

Stunt Planes & Gliders (most appropriate for grades K-5)
Fly through flight and aerodynamics basics! Discover the four forces that affect flight. Make and test various plane designs to see these forces in action! Build the your own foam plane and fling it forward!

Rocket Launch! (most appropriate for grades K-5)
See the principles of propulsion at work in a real rocket launch, and build your very own Shuttle Copter™ to fly to the skies!

Current Events-The current electricity workshop (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™.

Rocket Building (Two hour session-most appropriate for grades 3-5)
Explore the science involved in rocket construction as you build your own Skyblazer Rocket™ that you can take home!

Space Technology (most appropriate for grades 3-5)
Discover technology designed for outer space! Steer a laser beam through a laser maze, find hidden mountains using the principles of radar technology and discover everyday objects originally designed for use in space as we assemble our own Stereoscopic viewers ™!

Super Power Sources (most appropriate for grades 3-5)
Embark on a quest for alternative energy sources! Harness the sun's heat and ramp up a power generation station. Act out a "Power Hunters" to search for renewable and nonrenewable resources.
