Upcoming Sessions:

Sep 30th - Programming with Dash

Learn how we communicate with machines and tell them what we want them to do. Practice thinking like a computer as you program an adorable blue robot named Dash.

Oct 14th - Simple Machines

A machine is something that takes energy and converts it into a more useful or efficient form. It sounds complicated but it doesn’t have to be. A machine can be something as simple as a wheel or a ramp. This lab will feature hands-on demonstrations and experiments using some of the most classic examples of simple machines.

Oct 28th - History of Astronomy/Planetary Motion

Our understanding of the universe is constantly changing as new technologies allow us to gain more knowledge. We’ll talk about the basics of what we know and how we know it as we look at the evolution of astronomy and planetary science.

Nov 11th - Marble Roller Coasters

Physical energy can be stored or used to do work. Explore the difference between these types of energy and how energy can be transformed from one type to another.

Nov 18th - Engineering Parachutes

Engineering blends science, critical thinking, and creativity to produce amazing things. You’ll need all three of them to complete this week’s challenge. Using the materials provided, you must design a contraption that will keep your cargo safe while falling through the air.

Dec 2nd - Lunar Science and Telescopes

Discover more about our closest celestial neighbors and how we can bring far away objects, up close and personal.

Dec 16th - Nitromania

Students will see physical changes occur before their very eyes as they learn about the states of matter in this “chilling” program about liquid nitrogen.
