Kids Night Out: Spring into STEM

The Lab will be closed to the general public Saturday, April 27th to allow our guests to “SPRING into STEM!” Register your child (grades K-6) for a night of fun activities geared to all things to love about spring.
Guests will:
  • Learn about circuitry and simple electronics while creating a one-of-a-kind take home bug!
  • Discover all the hidden colors within a flower petal using capillary action to bring out pigmentation with Flower Power!
  • Give the Earth some love! Upcycle a container from home and work with our staff to plant sustainable seeds.
Pizza, fruit, drinks and dessert will be served in the Garage. Guests will learn from our experienced team of STEM Educators and work alongside them to complete each activity.

 

What’s up at the Experiment Bar? 

April is erupting with a new experiment starting April 13th!

This month, learn about the science behind Chromatography in this colorful experiment. Hidden Color Chemistry allows kids to understand that even though our eyes might see one color, the object could be comprised of several different colors.

New Experiments every month!
