The What, Why, and How?

Investigating the World Around You

What is a magnet? How do balloons hold air? What makes something sticky? There are a lot of good questions out there and this workshop will try to answer a few of them. Students will move though stations to investigate friction, magnetism, motion, and structures.

Matter of Fact

Did you know that water expands when it freezes? Or that mercury is the only metal that is in liquid form at room temperature? We see solids, liquids, and gases every day, but what about the fourth state of matter-plasma? Learn some interesting facts about the states of matter with this interactive stage show demonstration.

Inspire the next generation of environmental innovators! The Eco-Exploration program aims to teach youth about their eco-region through weather patterns and the local plant and animal species. Students will research climate change emphasizing traditional knowledge and explore the properties of the world around them. Field research is conducted by students outside their school and the results are collected and analyzed. Note: this workshop has an outdoor component. Students should dress for all weather conditions. 

Grades: 6 – 8

Maximum: 40 students

Length: 1.5 hours

Curriculum Connections:
