Our Grades K-2 Workshop Themes
Seeking our Senses
Kids explore all five senses. They test their vision with optical illusions, experiment with their hearing, and try their hand at reading braille.
Take some worms, add some food scraps, and what do you get; fertilized soil and a whole lot of fun! This workshop breaks down the science of decomposition and reveals the work of worms and other decomposers.
Kids examine fossil casts and explore the differences in the teeth of herbivorous and carnivorous dinosaurs. Students participate in a mini dinosaur excavation and make a cast of a dinosaur tooth to take home.
This class demystifies one of the most beneficial molecules known to humankind…polymers!
Kids surf sound waves in this “offbeat” class. They will explore how sounds are created and transmitted.
Kids discover the invisible fields surrounding magnets with our iron filings. They devise and perform experiments to test magnetic strength.
Where’s the Air?
This dynamic class explores the concepts of air pressure and buoyancy through hands-on experimentation and thought-provoking demonstrations.
Measure for Measure
Children learn all about the metric system of measurement and trek through a treasure trail.
