Our Demonstration Fun Station Themes
Learn about the life cycle of worms and why we need them in the soil. Meet baby, teenage, and adult earthworms. Gently handle an adult worm.
Explore a variety of activities that involve air pressure. Use Bernoulli's Principle to float balls in mid-air. Blow out a candles from nearly 20ft. away, and ultimately learn how air can travel long distances. See if you are stronger than atmospheric pressure.
Electricity & Light
Tesla coil demonstrations that involve small, high voltage arcs of electricity. Watch as the Mad Science instructor use electricity to burn paper, illuminate light bulbs, and launch corks into the air. Use diffraction glasses to separate white light into all the colors of the rainbow.
Explore the properties of magnets at this hands-on activity station. Design and build vehicles out of LEGO bricks and then make them levitate on our maglev track. Complete the magnet bridge challenge. Test your strength against an electromagnet and more.
A variety of taste and smell challenges, including a "blind" taste test where students use nose clamps to block their sense of smell.
Try out our bicycle generator to see how many LED's you can light up. Our display will let you compare your pedaling against the amount of energy needed to charge a battery, use a cell phone, illuminate a light bulb, or run an electric motor.
Science of Toys
Explore the laws of motion, inertia, gravity, and a variety of forces by experimenting with unique toys. Make strings dance, create the illusion of bubbles, and levitate objects.
Learn about how your eyes process light and how they can be tricked. Experiment with a camera obscura. Try and touch a hologram-like projection. See your friends' faces grow and shrink. Watch as Marilyn Monroe turns into Albert Einstein right before your eyes.
Super Structures Station
Discover how some shapes are more stable than others. Gather data by building triangle, square, and circular structures...and then crushing them. See if a roman arch can hold your body weight or if you can crush an egg with one hand. Attempt the spaghetti build challenge to see who can build the tallest structure.
Jaws and Claws
Animals have different shapes depending on what their bodies need to do. Examine real skulls, teeth and bones to see the physical differences between herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores. Compare a human femur and a mouse femur to a T. rex femur. Try and guess an animal from its x-ray.
