Traveling Assembly Shows

45-minute assembly-style shows are designed to get students excited about science in a fun and interactive way. Shows are available for groups of 100–250.

The Science of "Suds"

Get ready to think outside the bubble! Have some good clean fun exploring the captivating, colorful science of soap and water. Uncover the mysteries of bubbles’ shape, see what happens when you make bubbles with different gases, and push the limits of what suds can do. Who knows what we’ll put in a bubble next!

Grades Pre-K-5
Rockin’ Robots

Get up close and personal with some of the robots that work at the Science Center. Interact with our humanoid robot Quiz, meet some robots that help us in our everyday lives, and discover what makes this incredible technology tick! A projector and projection screen are required. One can be supplied if you do not have one.

Grades 2-12
Extreme Air    NEW

See the amazing power of air as we make objects hover in mid-air, break a board using only a ping pong ball, and explore the effects of the pressure that surrounds us. You’ll be blown away by our extreme air finale!

Grades 4-8
Forces and Motion

We live in a physical world governed by physical laws. Although simple, these laws can be a bit deceiving. Investigate the laws of motion and discover a few surprise forces along the way. As a finale, see what power a pencil really has!

Grades 4-8

Traveling Activity Stations for Grades K-9

Ideal for larger events, Activity Stations are tabletop demonstrations and hands on activities designed to engage groups of students or families in 5-10 minute walk up experiences. More than one station can be booked for an event. Please be sure to mention audience size when booking.

Electricity

Learn about static electricity using a Van de Graaff generator. It’s a hair raising experience!

Polymers

Investigate the slimy, absorbent, surprising world of polymers and explore how we use them in our everyday lives.

Magnets

Discover the sticky world of magnetic force! Test your knowledge of magnets by completing our challenges and uncover the secrets of an electromagnet’s strength.

Dry Ice

Investigate the states of matter using dry ice and participate in some “cool” experiments

Robots

How do robots know what to do? Direct our Edison robots to complete tasks using different methods of communicating. Investigate the language of robots with coding activities!

Air Pressure

Can you score a basket using just the power of air? Use our Bernoulli blower to harness air pressure to control the path of a beach ball, and investigate other ways that air affects objects.

Bubbles

Explore the science behind the suds. Investigate what bubbles are made of, what shapes they take, why they float, and much more.
