Description

Fun-damental Forces: Gravity... Inertia... Centripetal force... who could ever imagine that an introduction to physics could be so much fun? Well experience these awesome forces for ourselves and build some cool devices to watch them at work!

Super Structures: Discover the strengths of triangles, cylinders and arches. Learn how combinations of these shapes make for sturdy homes and skyscrapers! Use teamwork to build your own super structures as well as a super sturdy bridge!

Under Pressure: Join Bernoulli and Newton as we take this exciting look at the science behind aerodynamics and the properties of air... under pressure. Use a vortex generator to create air pockets with a punch, and levitate ping-pong balls in defiance of gravity!

Stunt Planes and Gliders: The Wright Brothers would be proud as we follow in their footsteps and learn the fundamental principles of flight. Create a Delta Dart, control surfaces on your paper airplane and build your very own loop-flying stunt plane. You’ll be a Top Gun after this class!

"Current" Events: Take a tour on the electron freeway! Conductors, insulators, transistors, and other elements in the world of circuit electricity introduce themselves to you via the tingle in your fingertips and the twinkle in your eye.

Wacky Waves: Create your own multi density wave bottles while learning about water, waves and the environment. Simulate the effects of an ocean oil spill and develop creative techniques to clean it up!

Science of Illusion: Magic? No. It's science! Youll learn the secrets behind famous magic that you can recreate for yourself! Mother Nature has some tricks of her own, and we would like to show you whats up her sleeve!

Che-Mystery: Discover the mystery in chemistry! Explore one of the most exciting and fundamental sciences as you watch water turn into juice and liquids turn into solids. Explore physical and chemical reactions with the Dynamic Dish kit.
