August 24th - The Eruption of Knowledge!
Instructor: Camden Cutlip
Explore the world of acid and bases by building a volcano and doing other experiments, all with items commonly found in your home. Discover why these reactions occur and how this is important to the world around us.
September 21st - Balloon Rocketry
Instructor: Dr. Martina Bachlechner
Did you ever wonder what the principles behind rockets flying high and to the Moon and Mars are? Well, Newton's laws of motion explain some of the major aspects of rocketry. Just as the releasing of an air-filled balloon sends the balloon through the air, it is the gas in the rocket that escapes in one direction and makes the rocket move in the opposite direction. In this workshop, participants will learn how Newton's laws apply to rockets on the big scale and their own balloon rockets' motions.
October 19 - Forensics: A Bloody Mess
Instructor: Kristy Henson,
Forensic scientists gain a lot of information from blood collected at a crime scene. In this workshop participants will learn what's in blood, how to determine blood type, match DNA extracted from blood, and calculate blood spatter. Learn how forensic scientists solve a crime from a few drops of blood.
November 16th - The Wonderful World of Molecules
Instructor: Melissa Sinisi
Do you ever wonder why you weigh less on the moon than you do here on Earth? Or, why a bar of soap floats on water? Come and find out how differences in density affect you.
