Nanoscience & Engineering
Let this small scale science come to you! This program introduces nano science and nanotechnology as a leading, cutting edge science with an emphasis on nano in nature, health, energy and the environment through seven (7) self-guided activity stations. (Grades 5-8) Science Standards: A,B,C,D,E,G
This electrifying workshop introduces students to electricity with shockingly interactive demonstrations on how AC and DC electricity works. Program includes eight (8) self-guided activity stations that explore simple circuits, conservation, properties and sources of electricity. (Grades 4-8) Standards: Science-A,B,E,G History-B
For the Birds
Who eats bugs, comes to visit Alaska every summer from Outside and makes lots of noise? No, it’s not your cousin Skyler - it’s the birds! Find out why these animals come to Alaska from across the world and what makes them such great survivors! (Grades k-6) Standards: Science-A,C Geography-A
Just like animals that call Alaska home today, Alaska’s dinosaurs dealt with extreme weather and seasonal changes. Learn about dinosaur adaptations and which dinosaurs made Alaska their stomping grounds! (Grades k-4) Science Standards: A,C,G,E
Imagine what would happen if an alien life form invaded our world. Seem far-fetched? It happens all the time! This workshop explores several invasive species and the destruction they cause to their new ecosystems. This workshop includes five (5) activity stations in which students identify their own mystery alien. (Grades 5-8)
Science Standards: A,C,G,F
Survive the Ice Age
See if your students have what it takes to live 10,000 years ago. Students will learn about ice age animal artifacts and early tools. Students will problem solve by participating with four (4) activity stations. (Grades 3-8) Standards: Science-A,C History-A, B,C,D
