Digging for Dinos


Calling all tiny archaeologists!

In this program for younger learners, students will experience the power of paired play and learning. After discovering incredible new facts about dinosaurs, students will have the opportunity to channel their inner explorer by digging for fossils, measuring a T-Rex, discovering the existing relative of dinos, and examining a coprolite.

The power of Electricity


Levitating pie plates, miniature lightning bolts, dancing hair! Discover the awesome power and science of electricity.

In this program, students will learn about the forces that create lightning and thunder and how static electricity can affect everything from light bulbs to human heads. Will they be brave enough to place their hand on the Van de Graaff generator? It’s a hair-raising experience!

Dry Ice – the Coolest Ice Around


What type of ice is so cold you can’t pick it up, but it will never melt? What type of ice can make George Washington scream, a Halloween cauldron come to life, and film canister rockets blast off? You won’t find the answer in your freezer, and it has nothing to do with water.

In this program, students are invited to see the power of frozen solid carbon dioxide … dry ice.

Fossils & the Stories They Tell


Learn all about dinosaurs! In this program, students will discover the wide variety of dinos that existed millions of years ago, how modern scientists know so much about them, how fossils are created, and what an archeologist does for a living.

Students will have the opportunity to take that knowledge to another dimension by digging for fossils, measuring a T-Rex, discovering the existing relative of dinos, and examining a coprolite.
