Discover the wonderful world of animals— above and below water! Feel the force of energy and the might of motion in exciting physics explorations. Explore alternative energy sources, venture into the world of robotics, shake up a mixture, and experiment with telecommunication! The amazing take home projects in every class will have you exploring more at home!

Additional Information

All About Animals
What is an animal? Children explore the animal kingdom and learn about the habitats, adaptations and life cycles of their favorite creatures. They experiment with animal calls and camouflage, and create their own Animal Tracks to take home.
Energy Burst
Children explore the energy of motion. They pop, jump and flip with hopping, swimming and swinging toys. They check out the kinetic energy in rubber, band-wound gadgets and reach their potential with the Catapult Take-Home.
Get Connected
Let's talk about telecommunications! Children chat over cables, link to a network and work with radio signals. Children wind through a cell tower relay and track cell phone users. They bring home the Wired World, an optical fiber telecommunications model.
Life in the Sea
The ocean holds many mysteries. Children learn about its diverse life forms—from plankton to whales! They discover underwater habitats and learn how humans can help protect ocean life. The Anaglyph Sea Puzzle lets children dive in and take the ocean home.
Mix It Up
It's time to shake up solutions and explore mixture chemistry. Children sort out mixtures, clear color from a watery solution and see how useful a suspension can be. The Super Sorter gives children the tools to sort mixtures at home.
Moving Motion
Children catapult into Newton's three laws of motion! They yank a cloth from under dishes, send crash test dummies flying and launch mini-rockets across the room. They see action–reaction forces at work with the twirling Newton Spinner Take-Home.
Radical Robots
Children get wrapped up in the world of robotics! Volunteers act out a robot, remote control device and an automaton. Children control an automaton through sound and give a robot directions! They take home their own Robot Hand—a human-like end effector.
Super Power Sources
How do we make electricity? Children explore renewable and non-renewable resources for power generation. They use mechanical force to turn on fans, and find out what makes a battery work. The Crank'n Shine gives children a chance to generate light!
