Science Roadshow Demos and Labs

Students will discover how air, water, Earth, and Sun interact to produce our weather and climate.

Concepts discussed include, but are not limited to: density, mass, temperature, water cycle, electricity and conduction, 4 states of matter, Bernoulli’s Principle.

Designed for grade levels 3-12

Discover why bees are classified as insects, explore bee ecology, and find out what you can do to help them with the problems that they are facing. Includes a genuine, safe observation bee hive to see all of the structures, bees wax comb, pollen, frame of honey. (Live bees are available for programs booked from April 15 through October 15 only depending on the weather.)

Concepts discussed include, but are not limited to: ecology, insects, environmental science, effects of pollution on ecosystems.

Designed for grade levels K-12

Students will explore the interconnected relationship between electricity and magnets. Create lightning with a Tesla Coil, learn about Lenz’s Law, and induce electrical currents and magnetic fields through conductors and insulators.

Concepts discussed include, but are not limited to: electricity, magnetism, induction, circuits, conductors and insulators, plasma phase of matter, static electricity, electromagnets, permanent and temporary magnets.

Designed for grade levels K-8

What is a bug? Students will discuss the differences between insects and arachnids, create a model of an insect’s life cycle, and explore body structures such as the compound eye. A brief introduction of how scientists communicate through scientific nomenclature also will be discussed.

Concepts discussed include, but are not limited to: comparative anatomy, ecology, scientific nomenclature.

Designed for grade levels K-5

This is an explosive and chemically reactive experience where students will learn about the different types of chemical and physical reactions, states of matter, and how the pH scale is used in their daily lives. One lucky student will get to take home the polymer muffin!

Concepts discussed include, but are not limited to: physical and chemical reactions, endothermic and exothermic reactions, combustion, polymer science, pH, buffer solutions, chemical engineering, materials science.

Designed for grade levels 3-12
