Pre-K Science Workshops

 

 Adventures in Air

Join us as we learn that even though air is invisible it is around us all the time. Preschoolers will   learn that air has the power to both move items, and to slow them down. They will also experiment with a variety of items that rely on the air to help them move. 

 

 Animal Friends

Animals make different sounds and noises, they have different types of coverings for their bodies.  Animals look different from the time that they are babies to when they are adults.  Some animals are pets at home, some live in the zoo and some live in the wild.  In this workshop we will learn, the Mad Science way, all about our Animal Friends.

Shhh!  Listen closely!  There are sounds all around us. Children will experiment with a wave motion model and a twirling tube that will help them understand that sound travels in waves and can be heard in a variety pitches. Also, they will have the opportunity to learn about the everyday materials that make a variety of special effects noises that they hear in the movies they watch.
