Mad Science - Fairly Odd Forces for age range 5-8

Primary Code: 3360
Course Description:

Harness the powers of science in this interactive Mad Science program!
Join our Mad Scientist as we explore fairly odd forces forces in science: Wacky Water, Fantastic Fliers, Magnetic Magic and much more.
We'll discover some of the scientific secrets behind aerodynamics and even levitate ping-pong balls with our Mad Science Air Blaster take-home. All classes include a special Mad Science take-home experiment!

Fun-Damental Forces:
Gravity, inertia centripetal force- who could ever imagine that an introduction to physics could be so much fun? We'll experience these awesome forces for ourselves and take home a Gravity Game to explore further!
Fantastic Fliers:
This class is a wonderful mix of conceptual and hands-on learning, which will introduce your students to the basics of aerodynamics. Kids will learn about the forces that affect flying machines, and will build a football glider, a Delta Dart and even a loop-flying stunt plane.
Under Pressure:
Join Bernoulli and Newton as we take this exciting look at the science behind aerodynamics and the properties of air... under pressure. Use a vortex generator to create air pockets with a punch, and levitate ping-pong balls in defiance of gravity!
Wacky Water:
Learn about water, waves and the environment. Simulate the effects of an ocean oil spill and develop creative techniques to clean it up! Use your own Mad Science Rescue Diver to save a sunken submarine!
Watts Up:
Learn about electricity, its properties and its role in natural phenomena. Make indoor lightning while conducting hair-raising experiments with our electro-static generator.
Magnetic Magic:
Investigate the powers and daily uses of magnets. Test for electromagnetic fields and then perform more experiments with your own home magnet lab!
Walloping Weather:
Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow will prevent us from enjoying our hands-on exploration of the science of meteorology! Discover how hurricanes, tornadoes and thunderstorms form, and how powerful they can be!
Take a voyage to the center of the Earth! We'll investigate the powerful process that shapes our planet and forms remarkable rocks, magnificent minerals, and glittering gems! Students receive a Mad Science Experitube to create a sedimentary stacker to take home.
