SOUNDS LIKE FUN
“Put your hand like this!” This popular program engages the entire audience as students learn about pitch, volume, the Doppler Effect, safety through sound and the biology of how we interpret sound. Twirling bugles, singing rods and roaring pipes teach basic concepts in memorable ways. Students will love the examples of simple experiments they can follow up with at home!!
CLIMATE CHANGE GAME
Learn about climate change in a way that will empower, inspire and intrigue! Electrical generation is demonstrated to show the connection between fossil fuels and our atmosphere. The effects of combustion are made “Crystal Clear” soot accumulates before the audience’s eyes. Exciting experiments demonstrating circuits and energy transfer help students learn that the solution to this big problem is lots of little changes. The program ends with an interactive game show activity, where students will see if they can score a “win” for nature!
This crowd favorite begins as students explore the science behind sinking and floating. Math connections are made as Crystal Clear teaches that density is the answer and it all depends on mass and volume. The magic of surface tension is demonstrated with the Upside Down Jar and Do Not Open bottles. Environmental stewardship is taught using the Perilous Plastics and Disappearing Water experiments.
MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU
This program will have your students excited about learning more about energy and the forces all around them. A 3D magnetic field, Newton’s Cradle, Spinning Pennies and Flying Eggs teach about contact vs. non-contact forces, the laws of motion and more. Students leave with a new understanding of the energy connection between science and our daily lives.
