Description

Come and investigate what science has to offer. Students get engrossed in entomology! They find out that insects are arthropods and inspect authentic insect specimens. They will dig-in to Earth science! Earth’s layers are introduced with a spotlight on its outer rocky crust. Children conduct hands-on experiments to understand how and why weather occurs. They learn how air affects weather and will perform experiments to prove that air has mass and takes up space. They will discover that life on Earth is difficult without simple machines. We will test their skills with the six different types of simple machines and explore how they work. Children are introduced to the science techniques used to investigate and analyze crime scene evidence. Children will also get clued in on the chemical reactions that occur when they prepare, analyze, and digest their food. Movie Effects is an exciting introduction to the science involved in the spectacular special effects and technology that are behind motion picture magic. Children test, play, and ponder over what makes toys work. They spin into action with kinetic top toys and see how stored energy is released.
