Description

Have fun with physics and Mad Science! Fly through flight and discover the four forces that affect flight. Make and test plane designs to see these forces in action. Act like junior architects and engineers! Test out shapes for strength and build a bridge. Create a whirlwind with a vortex generator. Make liquids turn into solids and watch objects disappear as you uncover the science of magic. Feel the pull of precession with the bike wheel gyroscope and strike the perfect balance with the Gravity Game kit. Investigate conductors, insulators, and other elements in the world of circuit electricity.

Additional Information

Current Events
Take a tour on the electron freeway! Investigate conductors, insulators, and other elements in the world of circuit electricity. Get turned on to science and technology with the Circuit Maze kit.
Fantastic Fliers
Fly through flight and aerodynamics basics! Discover the four forces that affect flight. Make and test various plane designs to see these forces in action! Take home the Sky Hawk Foam Plane glider and fling it forward!
Fun-damental Forces
What do gravity, inertia and centripetal force have in common? They are all part of the fun in this introduction to physics. Fell the pull of precession with the bike wheel gyroscope and strike the perfect balance with the Gravity Game kit.
Science of Magic
Learn the science behind illusions, read minds and perform a Houdini-style escape! Amaze and amuse friends and family with the Curious Cube kit. It’s not magic - It’s Science!
Super Structures
Act like junior architects and engineers! Test out shapes for strength. Work together to build a Roman arch. Construct a structure from scratch at home with the Bridge Basics kit.
Under Pressure
Join Bernoulli as we take an exciting look at the science behind air pressure. Create a whirlwind with an Airzooka vortex generator, and make pucks and balls levitate with air pressure! Launch foam rockets with the Air Blaster kit.
