Family science nights are a great way for families to explore together! All packages include a combination of a 45 minute science show, Science Discovery Stations, and Make n' Take Booths. Call us at 503-230-8040 to book a family science night for your school or organization!
Fire and Ice
The land of Fire and Ice is filled with dazzling demonstrations using fire, bubbling potions, and carbon dioxide gas frozen to 109 degrees below zero. This science show will stimulate a child's mind and spark their imaginations as they experience exciting, educational, high energy science magic! Come and see just how hot and cool science can be!
Up, Up, and Away
Let our Mad Scientist teach you about the many uses of that misunderstood state of matter, gas. Enjoy a Mad Science magic trick and get ready to be dazzled by a series of experiments that feature the awesome power of gas: air, hot air, air pressure, moving air, smoke and suction are all up for demonstration. Come and let science "float your boat!"
Spin, Pop, Boom!
How do you know that a chemical reaction has occurred? Start with a change of color in our chemically challenging "magic" trick. Move on to an assortment of experiments featuring both chemical and physical changes. Watch in awe as the Mad Scientist creates numerous versions of erupting science! Everything is guaranteed to be amazing!
Experience the invisible force that affects so many systems in our world. Kid friendly experiments demonstrate how magnetism is harnessed and used. Kids interact with a magnet in motion, magnetic liquids, and levitating tops. The Mad Scientist leads students in an exploration of a magnadoddle, a St. Louis Motor, and an alien catapulting electromagnet.
Students always marvel at the scientific properties of dry ice! Kids will be amazed by bubbles that float on a layer of sublimated gas; will enjoy cooling off under a dry ice shower and witness balloons being "magically" inflated. Top that off with the spinning "Hero's engine" powered by, you guessed it, dry ice!
Seeing is not always believing! Kids will experience optical illusions that will leave them seeing how easy it is to fool our eyes. Beginning with the camera obscura, students will explore diffraction, 3-D, holograms, and much, much more.
After experiencing magnetism first hand, kids build their very own Mighty Magnets!
What kid doesn't want to make their very own slime? Now they can, and learn about polymers too!
Exploring the Optical Illusions Science Discovery Station will excite your students to build their very own periscopes!
