Science of Toys

Children test, play, and ponder over what makes toys work. They spin into action with\nkinetic top toys. One changes color and one flips over, but they all release stored energy.\nChildren balance bugs and birds to reveal their centers of gravity. They learn that\nopposites attract with magnetic toys and then take a turn at creating a gear train.

Movie Effects

Movie Effects gives children a chance to sit in the director's chair and discover why science is the real star on the big screen. Exciting demonstrations and hands-on activities allow children to discover the science behind the amazing sound and weather effects from their favorite movies. Children investigate 3-D technology, and experience how this effect can make them feel like part of the action

Taste and Smell

Kids are introduced to their senses of smell and taste. they learn how these senses help them enjoy all of their favorite foods and scents, as well as experience those that are not as pleasant. Students create their very own scented pictures to take home.

Butterflies, Bees, & Ladybugs

In the final session, children will examine the other inhabitants of the garden, including butterflies, ladybugs, and bees, and learn how these creatures help a garden grow. They will learn about pollination, how bugs see, and basic bug anatomy

Energy & Motion

Kids explore the concept of energy and how it gets things moving. Toys are used to help explain simple energy ideas and capture preschoolers' attention. They also get to take home toys called “Boinks” that demonstrate how energy and motion are related.

Fluttering Birds

Children learn all about their fine feathered friends when they take an up-close look at birds. They discover how to match bird mates, see what eggs are produced by which species, learn how a bird's beak is a tool, and how to identify different birds' songs. They take home bird warblers to practice their bird songs at home.

Let's Look Closely

Children discover a world that they might not have realized was there, through the use of mirrors, microscopes, and magnifying glasses. They reveal hidden pictures, learn about reflection and symmetry, and use handheld microscopes to observe objects closely. They take away plastic magnifying glasses to continue their exploration at home.

Sea, Sand & Surf

Children explore the science of the sea and learn about what sand is made from, how shells are used by animals for protection, and what animals live in the ocean. They make their own ocean bottle to take home.

Shapes and Structures

Children discover different shapes and structures by using different kinds of equipment, like Geoboards and Magnatiles. They create their own structure to take home using cornstarch-based “noodles.”
