Students explore a variety of introductory topics about the wonders of both life and physical sciences in Discovering Science! Class order may vary.

Harnessing Heat - Take-on temperature. Build a thermometer and heat things up with friction. Feel how hot and cold can change at a touch. Apply your red-hot knowledge to your Heat Sheet.

Lights, Color, Action - Catch some cool colors. Make a rainbow out of white light. Split your name with ink and reveal numbers with color filters. Color the world with the Technicolor Blender.

Magnetic Magic - Explore the power of magnets. Create electromagnets and control a compass needle. See a magnetic accelerator in action. Grab a Magnet Lab for some at-home research.

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. Make a Periscope to see above and beyond.

Sonic Sound - Uncover the source of sound. Tap into sound waves and fill your ears with vibrations. Create sound effects and change the pitch of your voice. Use your Sonic Horn to make some noise.

Watts Up - Charge up on static electricity. Make indoor lightning and conduct hair-raising experiments with an electro-static generator. Use your Static Stick on electrons at home.
