Life Science Workshops

 

 All About Animals

Eager to take a journey inside the animal kingdom? This class does just that! Through the course students will explore various types of animals and creatures by discovering life inside a virtual animal kingdom. Students will view replicas of animals to learn about their unique physical features, and to help classify different species. In addition they will learn all about the circle of life and how it relates to both animal and human existence!

 

 Bare Bones

This workshop introduces students to the basic concepts of skeletal anatomy. They will manipulate life-sized human skeleton models, and examine how the different bones of our skeleton articulate, and how the joints operate.

 

 Body Basics

Join us as we journey into the depths of our skeletal, digestive, circulatory and respiratory systems and discover the amazing way our brains coordinate all that we do! Students will investigate their senses, test their eyes and noses, and try to communicate using Braille. They will love learning about their environment and all the living things that share it. This offers an amazing way to explore the ways that we are all connected.

 

 Bugs!

Engross yourself in entomology! Inspect authentic insect specimens. Update your insect anatomy know-how. Match-up insects with their habitats. Discover insect defenses and their role in our ecosystems. Explore the world's most abundant animal!

 

 Cells

This hands-on workshop provides students with an introduction to cell structure (including an understanding that cells are the building blocks of all living things), cell process, and cell division!

 

 Decomposers

Introduce yourself to fungi, mushrooms, and our favorite decomposer- the worm! Discover the role that worms play in our ecosystem and plant growth. Learn how they eat, see, move, and help people recycle. *Please note: This workshop contains LIVE worms*

 

 Dinosaurs

Delve into paleontology as we join a dinosaur dig! Examine real fossil casts to see the differences in the teeth of herbivorous and carnivorous dinosaurs. Students will participate in a mini dinosaur excavation!

 

 Ecosystem Explorations

Discover what an ecosystem is, where it can be found, and what it does. Students will challenge themselves to rid a "lake" of pollution, and build several real ecosystems for the class to keep!

 

 Life in the Sea

Ever wondered what it would be like to live in the sea as a fish, mermaid, or sea urchin? This course plunges children into the deep world of ocean life. They will explore several elements of the ocean including the various plants, ocean ecosystems, and different types of animals. In additional they will learn to classify ocean creatures and learn all about their physical traits including the comparison of shark and whale teeth!

 

 Photosynthesis

How is a plant like a battery? Why do most plants appear to be green? Diagram the process of photosynthesis, discover how plants convert light into food, and germinate your very own seeds to take home.
