Workshops

Marble Machines • September 6
Innovate and explore the creative, fun side of motion. Turn funnels, tubes, clothespins and dowel rods into a creative marble run as students change the motion of a marble through zigzags, twists, turns and loops.

Newton's Roller Coasters • October 4
Explore the physics behind these exciting thrill rides by experimenting with velocity, momentum, acceleration and speed. Students will learn about Newton's Three Laws of Motion and end the workshop by building their very own roller coasters. 

Tricky Trajectory November 1
Discover the forces of flight: lift, drag, thrust and weight.

Sounds of Science • December 6
Experiment and investigate with vibrations and sound by creating some unconventional noisemakers.

Alarming Circuits • January 3
Explore conductors and insulators by testing common materials and discover which materials allow electricity to flow easily.

Papertronics • February 7
Explore the flow of current by testing simple, parallel and series circuits.

Matter of Fact • March 7
Learn about the different states of matter while they watch experiments with liquid nitrogen.

Material Matter • April 4
Investigate the properties of matter. Students will experiment with mass and volume through substances like gold, wood, air and polystyrene.

Making Matter • May 2
Students will discover and explore solids and liquids first hand by melting ice, freezing water and observing phase changes in front of their eyes.
