Available by request with paid general admission. Duration: 30 minutes. Capacity: 100 unless otherwise specified.
Go for Launch
The first step in space travel is getting off the ground. Dramatic displays of chemistry and physics principles are the stars of this show. From simple pressure rockets that show basic thrust, to actual fuel-burning "boosters", things will go up and come back down with a flash and a bang! CHM; PHY
Potential energy becomes sound, light and excitement during this colorful and loud demonstration. Simple chemical compounds can change the properties of explosions to make an engaging scientific show. CHM; PHY' EVS; M
$120 per class (up to 30 students). Additional sessions will be scheduled for groups larger than 30. Duration: 30 minutes.
Engineering Challenges: Parachutes
Combine the forces of lift, drag and gravity with materials and design elements to create parachutes. Test your design by dropping your parachute from a height of 80 feet. Can you do it without cracking the raw egg payload? PHY; SL; RST; WHST
Operation Heart Dissection
Tour the body's pump with a guided dissection of a pig heart. Cut into the heart to reveal the four chambers, peer into the aorta and inspect blood vessels up close. Watch a narrated, recorded surgical procedure to see how cardiac surgeons operate on this essential organ with expertise and care. Duration: 90 minutes. BIO; SL; RST; WHST
