Fall 2018 Funshops

 

Magical Mysteries Funshop

 

Grades 3-4

Is it magic, or is it science? Our budding scientists will be investigating several seemingly magical events to discover if they really are magic – or if there is more happening than meets the eye. Come see why slime is attracted to magnets, and so much more!

Grades 5-6

Certain illusions help magicians appear to defy natural forces (such as gravity) and do the impossible! Students in this FUNshop will build a device to perform a floating object trick right from their own hands, and build and test a device that allows them to create and visualize holographic-like images. Along the way, students will discover the underlying STEM principles which allow these illusions to exist!

 

Makey Takey Holiday Funshop

Join us as we explore the world of circuits and make things that can be taken home and gifted!

 

Grades 3-4

You don’t need wires to run circuits when you can use pens and tape! Our engineers get to MAKE fun items and TAKE them home. Participants will get to create their own buzzing card for someone special and light up a picture frame to dazzle a photo!

Grades 5-6

What is light? Can we add lights to the things we wear?! Our product engineers will use conductive thread to create two wearable circuit projects (one to WEAR and one to SHARE).  It’s gonna be LIT!
