Electrical Extravaganza
Grades K-8

This demonstration will generate electrical awe as students see bolts of energy, hear electricity converted to sounds and sometimes feel the heat as energy is converted from moving electrons to a spectacular show. Science concepts include conductors and insulators and energy conversion.

Science Standards: K 1st- 2nd-1,4, 3rd-1, 4th-1, 5th-6th-1 7th-1,4, 8th

 

Good Vibrations
Grades K-7

Sound has never been this exciting!  Students will vibrate with excitement as we use our five senses, vacuum jars and fire to delve deeper into the movement of sound.  Students will see and hear concrete examples of how sound travels, the components of sound waves, compression and rarefaction waves and pitch.  Student will witness the relationship between vibrations, combustion, and sonic boom.

Science Standards:  K-1;  1-1;  2-1;  3-1;  6-1;  7-1

What’s The Matter*
Grades PreK-8

Liquid nitrogen is always a smash hit, and we present this demonstration with lots of shockingly cool phenomena for the students! Younger students are exposed to concepts of very low temperatures, and their effects on materials around them. Intermediate and older students are walked through a different set of activities with N2(l), with the emphasis on changing states of matter, down to the molecular level.
