A Matter of Chemistry
Chemistry is all about relationships. Some elements play nicely together while other pairings create explosive results. Experiment with chemistry in a fun and safe way while learning about the elements and states of matter, acids and bases, and much more!
Step into the lab of a chemist and discover the fun behind the science! Chemistry becomes an amazing adventure as we look at atoms and molecules, polymers and colloids, mixtures and compounds - and, yes, some (safe) explosions!
Building rockets, parachutes, airplanes and catapults creates a foundation for all the forces at work with flight. Blasting them off and charting our progress is even more exciting!
Polymers, colloids, and natural biotic creatures will amaze you as we cover concepts in chemistry, physics, biology and ecology. This is sure to please!
Where you are the Scientist and the Engineer.
Roller Coasters and Mag Lev Trains
Find the fun behind the science when exploring a favorite ride - the roller coaster! It only gets better when we get "magnetized" with Magnetic Levitation
Food for Thought
Making ice cream is a scientific investigation! Practices such as process engineering and food manufacturing becomes exciting as we use the Engineering Design Process to construct tasty treats. Who knew learning could be so delicious!
Girls and STEM
With over 18 fields of engineering and many branches of science we crank up STEM exploration. What technology helps us best? How does math tie in? We have many activities that highlight everyday things and helps us see the fascinating world around us in a new light!
Develop ideas with others who share the excitement in discovering and creating new things. Use engineering design practices and develop the process of thinking. We begin by inventing new toys and then move into developing other ideas such as emergency shelters, aids for people who have handicaps; and many other powerful tools!
