Friday, February 24th - Physics of Space Day
Magic of the Force: 9am-12pm / Morning / K-2nd
Soar into the science of Star Wars movies. Will the force be with you? Learn how forces act on Earth and in outer space. Investigate the magic of invisibility and the power of lights and lasers.
Twinkling Stars Astronomy Kit: 1pm-4pm / Afternoon / K-2nd
Star light, star bright, what are stars made of? Join us as we investigate outer space. Identify constellations and explore the planets in our solar system. Play some gravity games and design a moon lander!
Physics of the Force: 9am-12pm / Morning / 3rd -5th
Calling all Jedi’s. Determine if the science in Star Wars movies is real. Investigate the laws of physics and light properties to determine if lightsabers, holograms, and levitating vehicles could really exist.
Notion of Motion: 1pm-4pm / Afternoon / 3rd -5th
Discover how motion is all around us in our everyday life from gravity to the movement of the planets.Conduct experiments in physics to learn about Bernoulli’s principal and Newton’s laws. Design and race a toy car.
Meteorite or Meteorwrong: 9am-12pm / Morning /6th -8th
Each day over 100 tons of meteoroids (small rocks and dust) come crashing through Earth’s atmosphere Some of this material makes it to the ground as a meteorite. Join us as we learn about the properties of meteorites, where meteorites come from, and how to test a rock to see if it truly came from outer space!
