Three themes to choose from:

Grades Pre K – 10

Build big with hands-on math and engineering activities designed around some of history’s most notable creations. Students will have the opportunity to build their own geodesic domes, create a keystone arch and design a house stable enough to withstand an earthquake.

Forces and Motion
Grades Pre K – 10

Reinforce Newton’s Three Laws of Motion. Students discover both the science and the scientists behind some of the world’s greatest inventions, and put their knowledge of motion to work building roller coasters, launching film canister rockets, creating button flywheels and much more!

Energy Festival
Grades Pre K – 10

Students explore energy options and draw conclusions about how we can best meet our energy needs. Complete circuits, see how heat transfers and hunt down clues to discover the differences between renewable and non-renewable resources.
