Choose from these great topics:
Students will learn about the components of weather: moisture, temperature and air pressure. They’ll take part by crushing a can using water and heat, breaking a ruler with just a newspaper and creating their own cloud in a bottle.
This demonstration focuses on static electricity, current electricity and switches. After your students experience our electric pickle and make their own circuit, it’s not surprising that they will be glowing with excitement.
Your students will learn Newton’s Three Laws of Motion by the end of this program. Explore friction and collision (elastic and in-elastic) by predicting which can will win in our soup can race. Challenge your students to get an egg to drop unharmed into a glass and pick up a marble using only motion!
Sounds of Science
This Distance Learning program focuses on the science that makes sound possible. We will demonstrate how sound travels by watching waves on a wire and drumming out a flame! We’ll explore biology and show the different parts of the ear. Finally, your students will discover different methods of making sound with a straw kazoo.
What’s the Matter?
The states of matter (solids, liquids and gases) are the topic of discussion in this interactive demonstration. We’ll determine their properties and explore them in depth through our balloon challenge and the molecule dance. Things will get chilly as we use liquid nitrogen to talk about condensation, evaporation and freezing. We’ll wrap things up by having students explore physical and chemical changes and discover just what our mystery powders are all about!
