Funshops are 2-hour, hands-on, fun-filled, STEM activities for students in grades 3-6. They are written by our fabulous IMSA curriculum writing team to capture your child’s natural curiosity and mimic the enterprise of doing real science.
Frightful Fun Funshop! Saturday, October 19, 9:30 a.m. – 12 noon
It may look like ghoulish good fun, but this Funshop will provide your child with a hands on approach to the following science concepts:
Winter Survival Science
Have you ever trudged through deep snow? Do you sink into the snow as you walk or glide across the top? Living in a winter wonderland may be fun but it also comes with its own unique set of challenges… Come help us solve the Mystery of the Sinking Winter Critters and see if you can engineer for our animal friends a (scientifically) better way to get around in the snow!
Ice is always cold … or is it? Create your own “hot” ice using chemistry! Chemical reactions will also help you survive outside in the frigid winter air. Engineer your own hand warmers to keep the frostbite away as the temperature continues to plunge.
