Come experience a hands-on world of fun as you conduct a variety of scientific experiments! You will make and take home a wide assortment of doodads and formations that you created all on your own. Learn and discover many different scientific concepts in an entertaining and innovative approach. Generate your own growing cube and make a shiny clean penny! Make your very own UV bracelet and watch it react to the sun. Learn all about energy and molecules, create a crazy bouncy glob from glue, and some scary green slime! You will also get to witness some really cool scientific demonstrations from your instructor. Watch snow being created and feel how cold it is! Experience a really powerful magnet, a cool blue light, a soda explode, and many other exciting experiments in this fascinating and educational workshop!
ELECTRICITY AND MAGNETMANIA- Ages 7-11
Learn all about electronics, magnetism, and more in this fun and educational hands-on workshop! Take part in our Minds in Motion electronic lab and take home your very own circuit kit. With the aid of your instructor, simply follow the colorful pictures in your manual to build up to 100 exciting projects such as a flying saucer, alarm, and doorbell! All parts are mounted on plastic modules and snap together with ease. You will also take part and witness many cool magnetic experiments including making and taking home the World’s Simplest Motor! See a mysterious spinning top that never stops and witness a cool magnetic sand timer. Watch electricity being produced by a hand held generator and take part in a cool activity involving a very powerful magnet. Behold a special magnetic top levitating and much much more!
KINGII DRAGON ROBOT WORKSHOP- Ages 8-12
Build and take home your very own Kingii Dragon Robot! Based on the chalamydosaurus kingii, or frilled lizard, this robot is a smart super lizard with artificial intelligence (AI) and one of the wackiest lizards to roam planet Earth! Kingii Dragon Robot has an infrared sensor that is programmed for two different modes. If it is activated in the “escape” mode, the robot will feel threatened, gape its mouth, dramatically spread and flap its frill, illuminate its bi-color LED eyes, and scurry away to safety! In the “follow-me” mode, the robot will assess danger by bluffing the attacker. When the robot does not sense danger it might approach you like a pet lizard. Students will also free-build with hundreds of robotic parts and control their robotic creations using remotes and engines to see who can build the strongest and fastest robot. Working in small groups, you will truly be able to put your skills and imagination to the test!
TITAN TANK- Ages 8-12
Build and take home your very own Titan Tank! The Titan Tank is an infrared remote control kit. Its microprocessor provides different channels that allow up to four Titans to fight each other at the same time! It makes action sounds when shooting and when it is hit. The Titan moves using six wheels that can move forward, backward, right and left. Learn how the Titan Tank works by its use of remote control, infrared transmitting modules, motors, battery terminals, circuit boards, many gears, and more! You can compete with your friends on who can drive their Titan Tank the fastest or battle each other using your shooting indicator and life indicator. You will also learn all about how radio controlled devices work and the great benefits of using these devices. Come join and take part in Titan Tank tons of educational fun in this very exciting program!
