Preschool workshops are 45 minutes long and accommodate a maximum of 20 children per workshop.
Some of our favorite workshops include:
: Join Bernoulli and Newton as we take this exciting look at the science behind aerodynamics and the properties of air...under pressure. Use a vortex generator to create air pockets with a punch, and levitate ping-pong balls in defiance of gravity!
: Explore the three states of matter. Turn water into ice in 30 seconds, build a giant bubbling potion, carbonate plain drinking water and create the same awesome smoke illusions used in the movies.
: Investigate the powers and daily uses of magnets. Explore magnetic fields and their relative strengths and properties. Take home your own floating magnet set.
Matter of Fact
: Investigate the ingredients of the universe! Build your own marshmallow molecules. Play alchemist by turning a nickel into gold...well, almost...and use our secret formula to make your own Mad Science Putty.Che-Mystery
: Eliminate the mystery in chemistry! Explore one of the most exciting and fundamental sciences as you watch water turn into juice and liquids turn into solids. Explore physical and chemical reactions with the Dynamic Dish kit.
: Take-on temperature! Build a thermometer and heat things up with friction. Feel how hot and cold can change at a touch. Apply your red-hot knowledge to your very own Heat Sheet.
: Build your own periscope while learning about optics, reflection and sight. Seeing is not always believing...
