Get down and wacky with physics--the forces that rule the world! Get intense with our Che-mystery class, fly high with Fantastic Fliers, and unveil the Science of Magic and so much more.

Harnessing Heat
Take on temperature! Shake up a storm and see how friction creates heat. Feel how hot and cold can change at a touch. Apply your red-hot knowledge on your very own Heat Sheet to take home to continue your exploration of temperature.

Lights... Color... Action!
Celebrate the science of color! Split your name in ink and reveal numbers with color filters. Make a rainbow out of white light and try on diffraction lenses. Color the world with your very own Technicolor Blender to explore how light and color combine.

Magnetic Magic
Explore the power of magnets! Create electromagnets and control a compass needle. See a magnetic accelerator inaction. Take home your very own Magnet Lab to continue your research about how magnets work in everyday life.

Optical Illusions
Work against your eyes! Trick your brain with lines and coils. Discover how mirrors and their reflections can play tricks on what you see. Try to touch a mirage. Make a Periscope to see above and beyond and discover how mirrors work to create images.

Sonic Sounds
Uncover the source of sound! Tap into sound wave transmission and fill your ears with vibrations. Create a story with sound effects and change the pitch of your voice. Use your Sonic Horn to make some noise .a lot of noise!

Charge up on static electricity! Make indoor lightning and conduct hair-raising experiments with our electro-static generator. Use your Static Stick to test the movement of electrons in your home and see how static electricity acts on everyday objects.

Who gave us Morse code? How about earmuffs or the light bulb? Children will be guided from observation through presentation on their journey to becoming a great inventor.
