Fall Session
Hop on board the Mad Science express for a high-speed, hands-on science experience guaranteed to energize your mind! Explore the many facets of energy, forces, motion, potions, and yes…slime! Reach for your potential and ramp up your thinking about energy with gadgets, cars, and catapults. Discover how to make objects disappear and reappear as we unravel the mysteries of magic using science. Slide down the colorful pH scale and make liquids bubble, fizz, and pop. Learn the physics of optical illusions and build your very own periscope. Ooze into a gooey hour of sliming around as you discover the slimy properties of your favorite polymer. Act out hot molecule movements and discover some unusual applications of glow-in-the dark technology. Explore forces by making centrifuges, spinning gyroscopes, and building your own center of gravity game to take home. This program is so energizing, even gravity can’t keep you down!  Put your seat belt on…these energetic classes are going to make you have a blast!
