Beetles, Bugs, & Butterflies

This artful approach to science motivates students to explore the world of insects while learning about adaptations, physiology, and the role insects play in their daily lives. Colorful, take-home art projects creatively reinforce scientific concepts.

Available to Grades: Pre-K, K, 1st, 2nd

Program Type: Classes   Subject: Art, Science as Inquiry, Life Science
Cost: $6.75 per student & chaperone

Body Basics

Human torso models and life-size skeleton puzzles enable students to explore the components of the human body, with special emphasis on the functions of the digestive and skeletal systems. MyPlate guidelines and activities reinforce the relationship between positive eating habits and the importance of maintaining a healthy body.

Available to Grades: 1st, 2nd, 3rd

Program Type: Classes   Subject: Science as Inquiry, Life Science
Cost: $6.75 per student & chaperone

Bright Light

In this illuminating exploration of light and color, students make exciting discoveries as they experiment with lasers, diffraction glasses, and giant water prisms. Through real-life applications, the scientific concepts of refraction, diffraction, and reflection are illustrated with engaging educational activities related to spectrum analysis and the electromagnetic spectrum.

Available to Grades: 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th

Program Type: Classes   Subject: Science as Inquiry, Physical Science
Cost: $6.75 per student & chaperone

Circuit Circus

Students become energized as they form a human circuit, experiment with conductors and insulators, and construct various types of circuits. Scientific inquiry, problem solving, and cooperative learning engage students in this electrifying educational experience!

Available to Grades: 3rd, 4th

Program Type: Classes   Subject: Science as Inquiry, Physical Science
Cost: $6.75 per student & chaperone

Engineering Encounters

Through bridge-building activities, students gain a new appreciation for the relevance of civil engineering and design in their daily lives. Creative problem solving strategies motivate aspiring engineers to explore concepts such as force, balance, and stability.

Available to Grades: 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th

Program Type: Classes   Subject: Science as Inquiry, Physical Science

Exploring Ecosystems

Budding environmental scientists will investigate unique animal adaptations as well as food chains, food webs, and other factors that influence organisms in their various habitats. Students explore our local ecosystem using a video microscope and an interactive wetlands model. This class requires the participation of at least four chaperones willing to serve as “environmental assistants”!

Available to Grades: 4th, 5th

Program Type: Classes   Subject: Science as Inquiry, Life Science
Cost: $6.75 per student & chaperone

Forensic Crime Lab

Students analyze and interpret evidence to identify the victim and the perpetrator at a staged crime scene. They reach their conclusions using chromatography, forensic entomology, blood typing, skeletal identification, and other means of discovery that are based on the principles of the scientific method. This class requires the participation of at least six chaperones willing to serve as “forensic assistants”!

Available to Grades: 5th, 6th

Program Type: Classes   Subject: Science as Inquiry, English & Language Arts
Cost: $6.75 per student & chaperone
