Our Grades 3-6 Workshop Themes
Playing with Polymers
Students discover the chemical and physical properties of plastics. They explore the plethora of physics principles that play a role in our daily lives.
Matter of Fact
Students explore molecules and the forces that hold atoms together. They see the dramatic differences between physical and chemical changes, as they mix up a batch of their very own Mad Science Putty to take home.
Students excite electrons as they construct some serious circuits during this program all about electricity. They test various materials for conductivity with space-age plasma balls. Finally, they create and play a buzz-making electric game.
Students recreate the process of rock formation and devise ways to identify and classify rocks and minerals. They experience the thrill of panning for gems; the gems they find, they can take home for further study and investigation.
Black and Blue Oceans
Students devise and test techniques to handle the aftermath of an oil spill, in an oil spill simulation, and discuss how to clean up and prevent the pollution that plagues our oceans.
Be Tobacco Free
Be Tobacco Free is designed to educate on the direct & indirect effects of tobacco use on the body.
