This 90-minute session is designed for kids in 2nd – 7th grades (7 – 12 year olds). Homeschool Workshops will meet at 10am on the first Tuesday of every month. *Space is limited to 30 children per session, and reservations are required.

Fling It!

October 1 - Think It. Build It. Test It … Do It Again! Students will explore the science of catapults and create their own. This workshop uses materials that you have around the house, which makes it easy for students to continue their exploration at home.

Scream Machine

November 5 - Reinforce Newton’s Three Laws of Motion. Students will discover both the science and scientist behind the roller coaster.  They can put their knowledge of velocity, momentum, acceleration and centripetal force to the test by building their very own coasters.

Chemistry Collaboration

December 3 - Students will work together and investigate mysterious substances that have strange and surprising properties. During this workshop, we will focus on the differences between chemical and physical changes, and students will learn firsthand how to create endothermic and exothermic reactions.

Charged Up

January 7 - Students will discover the basic principles of electricity through hands-on challenges with insulators and conductors, the use of energy sticks and our hair-raising Van de Graaff generator.

The Night Sky

February 4 - It’s always a starry night inside our portable planetarium, the STARLAB.  This interactive workshop will allow students to travel out into the universe to ponder the stars and learn the constellations.

Solid, Liquid, Oobleck?

March 4 - Learn about the states of matter like never before. We will be using liquid nitrogen to show the different phase changes right in front of your students’ eyes. Then, students will discover an amazing substance that isn’t quite a liquid or solid!

3-2-1 Lift Off!

This workshop is Full.  We are no longer accepting reservations for this program. April 1  - Have your students get ready for the flight of a lifetime, and explore physics in new ways. With recycled materials, water and compressed air, students will master the science of soda bottle rocketry and participate in an engaging, thought-provoking experience.
