Science Festivals

Students have the opportunity to be scientists with 12 hands-on activities. This event works great day or night to get both students and parents excited about science! Festivals include material designed to prepare your students for the OAA or the MEAP!

Two themes to choose from:

 

Structures

Build big with hands-on math and engineering activities designed around some of history’s most notable creations. Students will have the opportunity to build their own geodesic domes, create a keystone arch and design a house stable enough to withstand an earthquake.

Forces and Motion

Reinforce Newton’s Three Laws of Motion. Students discover both the science and the scientists behind some of the world’s greatest inventions, and put their knowledge of motion to work building roller coasters, launching film canister rockets, creating button flywheels and much more!
