All science demonstrations are 45-60 minutes long. They can be tailored to fit your needs and/or schedule. The demos are both educational and entertaining and cover science curriculum goals and standards. The following are demonstrations that are available:
Motion Commotion Man has always wanted to move things. Participants will help recreate a short history of how man has moved things. Learn about the fuels man has used in the past and the ones he will use in the future. Also, learn about Newton’s Laws of Motion and the dark forces that try to prevent all our efforts. Watch as somebody takes a ride to “forever”.
• develop an understanding of the characteristics of objects and materials
• be able to differentiate inertia in stationary and moving objects.
• develop an understanding of science as a human endeavor.
• be able to differentiate between Newton’s Laws of Motion.
• develop an understanding of technological design.
• be able to describe the parts that make up a system.
• be able to relate how the parts of a system affect the whole system.
Learn about electricity in this shocking and hair-raising experience. We will be entertained by AC/DC including a light show and I am not talking about the "famous" rock band. We will also form a human circuit while we sing "May the Circle be Uroken." Just kidding about the singing.
Studets will be able to:
construct a simple circuit.
construct a circuit to produce light, heat, and sound.
classify materials as conductors and insulators.
asess the dangers of electricity.
describe the parts that make up a system.
relate how the parts of a system affect the whole system.
We certainly can’t see it, but we know it’s there. Investigate the magic of air pressure. See how powerful air really is. It’s stronger than gravity. It’s stronger than an empty metal paint can. It’s even strong enough to put a hole through an empty pop can with a ping pong ball.
develop an understanding of the position and motion of objects.
observe that the position and motion of objects can be changed by pushing or pulling
be able to describe observable changes such as speed and position.
be able to describe the parts that make up a system.
be able to relate how the parts of a system affect the whole system.
