Science Expo and Night of Fun
Join us on March 4 from 4:30 to 7:30 for science, pizza, and lots of smiles!
Dave, our passionate science teacher, will host an evening filled with wonder and fun as he demonstrates several experiments from structures to electricity. Everyone will have a chance to try science and we are confident no one will leave disappointed. And just to be sure, we'll be ordering from Family Pizza. You can view the program outline below...
Using a Van de Graaf generator (that name IS spelled correctly!) to light bulbs as we hold them in our hand, make girls' long hair stand up on end, levitate paper confetti, mimick St Elmo's Fire and the Aurora Borealis, and charged solar winds.
Truss Frameworks / Distribution of Forces / Force Vectors:
Seeing a miniature Roman Arch Bridge made of small wooden blocks support a full person's weight.
Playing with some tuning forks, a watered filled wine glass and a sound generator to test our hearing (and lack thereof) ability and learn about sound waves.
We will watch magnetic Ferrofluid defy gravity and pour UPWARD and learn some of the amazing modern uses of this cool stuff.
Learning about light diffraction, light polarization, and how the human eye sees light and color. And If the Lord should tarry, we'll use a small rip chord generator, a few jeririgged mirrors along with a few lasers to make a wild and crazy portable laser light show.
We hope to see you there!
