In this session, students will learn about primary and secondary colors, states of matter and about the five senses. We'll make fossils, explore magnetism and static electricity, and learn about several natural weather phenomena. Learn about chemistry and polymers, dissect seeds and make edible insects and spiders. For Halloween, our lab dawns a spooky feel as we have fun with eyeballs and Jello brains!
Science Made Fun programs provide an opportunity to expose kids, at an early age, to the amazing world of science and nature, through discovery-style learning and inquiry-based dialogue with a real scientist. In this hands-on science class, students will explore various topics among chemistry, physical, life, and earth sciences. Each week the students will discover a new and engaging scientific concept, which will be accompanied by two or three hands-on experiments which bring the concept to life. Students roll up their sleeves and become REAL scientists!
- Matter Matters©:
Find out what really matters. Have FUN as we explore all different types of matter. Discover bubbling potions for yourself, watch air take up space and even have a contest with carbon dioxide!
- Color Fun©: Separate colors, make secondary colors and make rainbows in milk!
Spooky Science©: During the week of Halloween, enter our spooky science lab at your own risk! Make your very own Goblin Goo and glow-in-the dark eyeballs to keep.
- Float or Sink?: Learn about the concept of density and make your own bubbling lava lamp!
- Fossil Fun©/Jurassic Jr.©:
Step back in time to the age of the dinosaurs. Become a paleontologist and discover real fossils. Uncover the mysteries of the dinosaurs and make your very own fossil.
Get the facts…on those natural acts! Earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes and volcanoes. Learn about the changing conditions which cause these phenomena. Have FUN as we make them happen in your classroom.
