Up Close Science

Two men in museum uniforms are on either side of a Van der Graff machine. Metallic disks float in the air, repelled by the machine.

Program description

How does it levitate? Why does it make colour? What happens when it freezes? These are a few of the puzzling questions you’ll be asking during this virtual experience, which consists of a series of fascinating science experiments where participants are in control of what happens next! Our short and flexible program is tailored to your group’s needs, age and interest. 

This program is virtual via Zoom. We have implemented the following measures to ensure that our virtual programming is safe and secure:

  • Waiting room to prevent uninvited guests from joining the meeting
  • Controls in place to control if and when students can chat and share content
  • End-to-end encryption to ensure proper security
  • Recording of program is not permitted by any party

Teacher tips

An educator from the museum will connect with your classroom using videoconferencing software. Through your web camera and the chat feature, the educator will see and interact with the students throughout the session. See the attached document for tips and tricks for connecting with your class.


After you book your program, we will provide information about the program set up and any supplies you/your students will need to maximize your experience.



We request a maximum of 30 students or one classroom per session, in order maximize the educator’s ability to interact with your students.
