Twilight Adventures

Experience all of the excitement of a STEM Sleepover in three fun-filled hours from 6pm – 9pm on either Friday or Saturday night! This program is ideal for small packs, multiple troops or dens.
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 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-10

Learn how airplanes fly through hands-on activities and demonstrations.  Put your knowledge to the test by building a flying machine and test it in the vertical wind tunnel. Fantastic Flying Machines: Learn how airplanes fly through hands-on activities and demonstrations.  Put your knowledge to the test by building a flying machine and test it in the vertical wind tunnel. Imagination Playground Engineers: Use SciTech’s Imagination Playground to complete various engineering challenges.  Compete against your friends to see who can build the best house, car or spaceship. Bridge Builders: Learn about the different types of bridges and what makes each one unique.  After that challenge your friends to see who can build the strongest bridge.
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.
