Recommended for Grades Pre-k through 2nd. This is a hands-on program allowing participants to make their own recycled paper. It also allows participants to learn why recycling is always important! You also may ask for seeds to be added to make your paper plantable!

Recommended for Grades Pre-k through 4th. Watch a series of magic tricks, that can be explained by science! Choose between the Hovercraft or the Air Cannon for a unique show, that your guests will love!

Recommended for Grades Pre-k through 6th. Air is all around us. It influences our lives in many unexpected ways. This program (which is adaptable for large audiences) discusses the Bernoulli Effect and how it applies to flight, hovercrafts, and vortex phenomenon. A favorite amongst students as it is fast paced, highly engaging, and has a ton of student participation. Choose between the Air Cannon or Hovercraft for a unique show experience.

Recommended for Grades Pre-k through 6th. Kids love to get messy, so why not combine science with it! In this program participants create two different kinds of slime, and then compare the two together. This helps them learn about Non-Newtonian fluids!
