And 

Science Adventure Kids

Are excited to invite you along on adventures 

throughout the school year!

 

Come explore, investigate, and experiment with us all year long!

Our days are filled with hands-on projects, demos, and fun to make our scientific inquiries most memorable.  Some superstars of science that we discuss include Madame Curie, Isaac Newton, Archimedes, Lewis Latimer, Jaques Cousteau, and Sue Hendrickson.  We love to tell the whole story of how they did it!    We answer all manner of questions on theme and off.  These are just a few of the subjects that pop up often: space, animals, anatomy, the ocean, health, nutrition and so much more!

 

Join us throughout the rest of the year!!!

 

Friday March 29  Different frequencies and wavelengths of visible light are absorbed or reflected by molecules known as pigments.  Join us for a vibrant day as we explore the Chemistry of Color.

Monday April 1  An ever-exciting eclipse is upon us.  Today we’ll uncover the difference between a lunar and solar eclipse.  As we explore this fantastic phenomenon, we’ll discover how to view the upcoming event safely!

Wednesday April 10  Have you ever seen the edge of the universe? The expanding crab nebula? The ice boulders of the oort cloud? And how can we?  Telescopes!  They just keep getting better.  After centuries these amazing tools went from a child's toy to unfolding in space!  Let's find out more about how they work.

Monday April 22  What role do trees play in the ecosystem? Let’s get to the root of the extraordinary lives of trees.   What is their life cycle?  Why do they matter so much?  Wangari Maathai provides us with some answers through her vision of widespread

tree planting across Kenya. 

Tuesday April 23  We will flow through themes presented throughout the week by our guest experts, workshops, and our students’ inquiries.  We will follow student-led questions into hands-on projects and experiments. Students also have the opportunity to visit our on-site animal menagerie and play in our own backyard space.

Wednesday April 24  Dig into geology today as we examine metamorphic rocks and more.  Our rock collection has sedimental value that we can’t wait to share with you. 

This science adventure is sure to rock. 

 

Thursday April 25  We will flow through themes presented throughout the week by our guest experts, workshops, and our students’ inquiries.  We will follow student-led questions into hands-on projects and experiments. Students also have the opportunity to visit our on-site animal menagerie and play in our own backyard space.

Friday April 26  Where would we be today without the lightbulb? In the dark I imagine.  Let’s stroll back in time and find out just what Lewis Latimer had to do with it and how patents shape the way we view inventors and inventions.  Alas, the day would

not be complete without an illuminating project.

Monday April 29  Many animals have optical defense mechanisms such as camouflage and mimicry.  Today we’ll zero in on one of my favorites… The butterfly and their ocelli! These spots that look like eyes and often appear as part of a big scary face are not just aesthetically awesome, it turns out they serve an important purpose for our winged friends!

Tuesday April 30  We will flow through themes presented throughout the week by our guest experts, workshops, and our students’ inquiries.  We will follow student-led questions into hands-on projects and experiments. Students also have the opportunity to visit our on-site animal menagerie and play in our own backyard space.

Thursday June 6  Did you know that summer is the season of hail?  It’s hard to imagine that the warm weather brings in precipitation consisting of solid ice!  It’s wildly intriguing how it forms inside thunderstorm updrafts.  Delve into the details with us!

Friday June 7  Take a deep breath in and feel your lungs fill with air and your brain fill with questions.  You are invited to analyze anatomy with us as we delve into the respiratory system. 

This day is sure to be a gas!

Monday June 17  Sun, sun, sun, here we come.  Remember to wear your shades because today’s topic is going to be bright.   It’s big, it’s bold, it’s beautiful.  It’s a ball of gas we can’t live without.  

Wednesday June 19  Physics is fun, but what’s more fun? Bubbles! More fun still?  The physics of bubbles!  Come scrutinize surface tension with us as we determine the wonder of bubbles!
