3-D Illumination Electronics
Experiment, have fun and take home your own 3D Illumination Electronic Kit. The first of its kind and fantastic! There will be exciting light effects. See a three-color light tunnel. Activities include building your own security house. No one will enter as the alarm sounds and color LED flashes. Play button ball or hole ball. Build a projector that will show six cool images. Use your 3D color glasses. Build a house with lights. Join the Sciensational Workshops way of learning where it is hands on and fun. That is STEM!
Make It and Take it Home
In this hands-on, fun, and exciting program, you will discover how amazing science is. You will make and take home a wide assortment of toys designed to teach you science concepts in a hands-on way. Grow and take home a crystal tree. Make an energy bead bracelet and watch as those amazing beads turn from white to a rainbow of colors before your eyes. Build a working electric motor. Make your own sharpie pen T-shirt and learn some cool chemistry (student supplies a 100% cotton T-shirt). Make your own bubbling blobs and explore the properties of a density tube. Make silly putty—glowing goo—green flubber and other cool projects. By the way...we will make ice cream in our own amazing, different, Sciensational way!
Follow Me Robot
How would you like to build a robot that has four built-in microphones? It will detect the sound source and in turn it will move and turn accordingly. It is your own robot to build and take home. Wow! It starts flashing and plays Do-Re-Me. Make it move the way you want it to move. It is so smart. It will move in its own routine if it does not get a signal in 1 minute. It will go to sleep if you do not issue any commands in 90 seconds. However, you can wake it up. Learn about the different gears and sensors as you build it. Get to build other robots working in groups. Join in our Sumo wrestling and obstacle course events with what you have built. See everything happening as you build. That's the Sciensational way!
Prospector Mystery Rock
You are going to be a Prospector (you know those people who were always looking for gold?). In this workshop you will get to excavate for valuable gems, fascinating rocks, and some ancient fossils. All are yours to keep. What hidden wonders will you find? The identities of the 10 specimens found in your Mystery Rock have been kept a secret from you. You will experience the thrill of discovery, much as prospectors did. You will be able to identify each one. Your specimens are in a hard clay material the same as prospectors found. You will have to get them out without breaking or scratching them. That’s not that easy. You will get an excavation tool, specimen brush, log book, sorting trays and labels. You will, as a Prospector, record the color, both wet and dry texture, and its ability to float for each of the 10 specimens you dig out. Make an educated guess with our help to whether each one is a rock, gem, or fossil. See how good you are. You will learn from us the exact name and classification. We give you hands-on science...Prospectors style - fun - educational - exciting!
A child on any given week can register morning, afternoon or both. Children that register for both workshops should bring a peanut-free lunch snack and a drink. We will provide supervision at no extra charge.
