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
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.


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


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

Magnets NEW

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 NEW

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.

Family Science

Family Science is an informal science education program that gives children and their caregivers an opportunity to work and learn together. During Family Science events, children and caregivers work cooperatively in pairs and small groups to solve problems and “talk science” while engaged in 18 different activities.

Hands-on activities that use easy to find, inexpensive materials let families explore the ways in which science plays a role in everyday life. Families can discover how to lift a cereal box with just a single sheet of paper in "Breakfast Lift,” create a musical instrument in “Strumming,” and much more. With instructions available in both English and Spanish, these fun experiences build skills, confidence and excitement about science learning.
