Three UPDATED themes to choose from:

Grades Pre K – 10

Students will become structural engineers as they explore how science, shapes and math combine to create amazing architecture. Old favorites such as creating earthquake resistant homes, Roman arches and geodesic domes are combined with NEW challenges of creating wind proof towers and bridges out of unusual material. This festival will have your students building big! 

Forces and Motion
Grades Pre K – 10

Forces, motion, engineering ... oh my! Students will explore Newton's Three Laws of Motion and the Engineering Design Process as they experiment with magnets, rockets and creating a machine that will transport a marble.  

Energy Festival
Grades Pre K – 10

Students will be electrified as they learn about all types of energy and energy transfer. They will explore circuits, thermal energy, conductors and insulators, and potential and kinetic energy. New experiments will also highlight wind power and sound energy!
