Visitors of all ages are invited to discover solutions to science and engineering challenges. Science Saturdays are drop-in activities, feel free to stop by at any time during the event hours.
Participants will build a hydraulic-powered robot arm.
"The Chain Gang" introduces children to the wide world of polymers.
Can you keep and from breaking after a crash?
Learn about Bernoulli’s Principle and have a “lifting” experience as you design a satellite that stays afloat.
Experiment with magnets and how they are used. Play with electromagnets, motors, and compasses.
Learn the importance of air resistance and drag in aerodynamics. Apply these concepts to slow down a race car
Explore the basic concepts of inertia, gravity, force, and motion by building a device that will complete a task through a chain of reactions.
Learn about the importance of foundations and structural loads as you build a trophy that supports a ball.
Stretch your imagination by designing your own rubber band-powered car.
Light moves in predictable ways once you learn about the power of optics. Visitors will build their own light maze during this week’s activity.
Dive into the science of water and experiment with different ways to generate power from this natural resource.
Discover how mathematics is everywhere in nature.
Rock and roll with acceleration, physics, and lots of loops as you create a miniature roller coaster.
Explore the basics of electrical circuits, and create your own circuit to power an LED bulb.
Discover how explosions light up the world. Play with miniature rockets and build your own building to withstand an explosion.
The concepts of momentum and energy transfer are introduced and applied to meet the challenge of building a catapult to launch a “pom-kin”.
