Think Tank Workshops

When you book a Think Tank Workshop during your next field trip, you have the option to choose one of six workshops. 

Grades 3-5 and 6-8
Flour and water aren't just for baking cakes. Learn about electrical circuits with play dough. Your students are the electrician and the inventor. Play dough is an approachable way to teach even the youngest learner about circuits. Green's hot and red's not when they create dough models that light up!



Electro Dough

Grades 3-5
Flour and water aren't just for baking cakes. Learn about electrical circuits with play dough. Your students are the electrician and the inventor. Play dough is an approachable way to teach even the youngest learner about circuits. Watch your students get excited about electricity when they create dough monsters as they light up! 

Eye Opener

Grades 6-8
Take your students' vision to a new level by exploring the eye of a cow! Through the technique of dissection, they'll examine the wonders of the cow's interior eye. Walk away with an understanding of the difference between the vitreous humor and aqueous humor ... and a new perspective on how we see the world around us.

Jitter Critters

Grades 3-5 and 6-8 
Design a creature to bring to life the learn how to use a motor to get your creation moving. Your students will teach their critter to dance and doodle, slide and shake in a way that's all their own as they learn about electronics, engineering and design. 





Marble Machines

Grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8
Can you speed it up? Can you slow it down? Can you change its direction? Using everyday materials, students will engineer their own pathways for marbles and try to successfully meet our design parameters as they get hands-on with the engineering design process.




Papertronics

Grades 3-5 and 6-8
Students will light up someone's life with a paper creation that truly shines. Copper tape, some LED light bulbs, wristwatch batteries...and voila! They've created a circuit! Now merge the circuit with your paper creation. All they'll have to do is press the right spot to complete the circuit and see the light. 

Wise Up

Grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8
Students will have a hoot as they learn about owls and their environment. This workshop gets hands-on with the life cycle. Identify bones and collect data to help researchers learn more about owl habitats across the country. Your class can become honorary citizen scientists!
