Ever wonder how a magnet can tell us where to go, or how we know what stars are made of? In this series, students will alter their voices with amazing sound effects, build the world's simplest motor, and see what fireworks and astronomy have in common.
Harnessing Heat
Learn what heat really is, warm sand kinetically, confuse your senses in a temperature test, and build a thermometer.
Lights, Color, Action
What do fireworks and astronomy have in common? Light!  Explore the color spectrum with prisms and diffraction glasses, blend colors to produce white light, split white light into colors and see how blending pigments differs from blending light.
Magnetic Magic
Students will examine magnets up-close and at work, observing their behavior and their uses. They will be involved in activities which will let them explore the relative strength and properties of magnetic fields.
Sonic sounds
Demonstrations show the relationship of vibration to sound. Students produce and transmit sounds with a variety of materials, and change their voice waves using a digital voice machine.
Tantalizing Taste
How do we taste things? Do things taste the same to everyone? Students get hands-on with magnifiers, model tongues and mirrors to see how their sense of taste works and participate in a classic taste test.
Children make feathers levitate, hair raise and sparks fly as they explore the properties and behavior of static electricity.
