What is our primary source of heat and light? How do the daily and seasonal cycles of the Earth affect everyday life? Students will answer these questions and more with a trip to the museum’s inflatable planetarium.
Teach students some basic engineering principles through this entertaining hands-on exploration. In this program, students become budding engineers as they design a bridge able to withstand the physical forces acting upon it.
Discover how our houses are wired, allowing us to control various devices independently in different rooms. Through various hands-on electricity experiments, students will explore electrically conductive and insulating materials, and will learn the parts of an electrical circuit.
Through exploration with circuit blocks, students will design and build series and parallel circuits, including the addition of switches and various devices. They will also learn to assess the differences in these circuits, and draw circuit diagrams.
In this program, students will explore the phenomena of light and geometric optics, including reflection, refraction, diffusion, focus, the convergence and divergence of light, the transmission of light, and shadows.
