Steamworks for Kids- Out-of-School Full-Day STEM Workshops
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: A crime has been committed - will you be the Science Sleuth to solve it? Have fun learning about forensics, the power of observation, and crime lab chemistry while you perform different experiments that demonstrate how tricky cases are solved! Search for evidence, gather clues, and discover how you can use science to solve a mystery. Each Science Sleuth will dust for fingerprints, analyze handwriting, test for blood type using simulated blood, examine hair and clothing fibers, practice chemistry to identify mystery substances, and more. Then, use your skills to have fun solving the crime of the century!
Electronics Arcade & Game-atorium: Do you like to play board, card, and dice games? How about working with electronics to build and play your own electronic games? Then this workshop is for you! Work together with electronics kits to build fun arcade games. Program a spinning light to display different sayings, and build and play a Home Run Derby game. Learn to program the circuit board to test your memory, play the card game "21", and make different funky sounds. Play with a disco ball, sirens, or even a light show! Play group games, card games, board games, and even make up your own to play. Spend the day at the Game-atorium for some Eectronic Arcade fun!
Wonderful Wizardry Science: Join in the escapades of your favorite magical characters while discovering the seasonal magic of science in this fun, chemistry-based workshop! Make edible wands, brew potions and butter beer, and discover the science behind wizarding “magic”. Watch a mirage mysteriously appear, experiment with color, light, and illusion, and do experiments that explain how wizarding “magic” works. Graduate with a Certificate of Wizardry at the end of the workshop. Where will the sorting hat place you? Come and find out!
