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.

Grades: K – 3

Maximum: 55 students

Length: 1 hour

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.

Mechanical Forces: Energy, Motion... Discover!

Who were Sir Isaac Newton and Rube Goldberg? And what do they have in common? Students work in groups to create their own mechanism to solve a simulated real life situation. Inquiry based learning occurs as students use a variety of materials to make simple machines and discover the properties of forces and motion.
