Our Demonstration Discovery Station Themes
Dynamic air fun! Levitate balls on air, feel the power of a vortex of air, and see impressive vacuum pump demos.
Bubbling Potions/Dry Ice
Explore one of the most exciting and unique substances out there! Experience Dry Ice “burps”, the Mad Science “shower”, and a special effects fog cover.
Experiment with electric circuits and build your own simple circuits to power lights and buzzers.
Comets and Asteroids
Learn about asteroids and recreate the impact craters asteroids have made on our moon. Watch as we create a “kitchen” comet and simulate an asteroid burn out as it hits the atmosphere.
Learn about potential and kinetic energy using our cool rubber band cars, poppers and boinks.
Learn about forces through trying to balance a balancing bird or making a pile of bolts stand without assistance. See how centripetal force can keep a full cup of water from spilling as it is spun in a circle.
Fun with Candy
Learn the science behind gasified candy. Play with candy chromatography. Use your senses and put different candies to a smell test and much more. We can even make a candy “fountain”, if you have the space.
Light and Lasers
Learn about the spectrum of visible and invisible light, see all the colors in light with our Diffraction glasses, and explore a laser maze.
Learn about the 6 simple machines and how they make everyone’s life easier.
Be mystified by the wonders of optical illusions! Test your ability to find hidden images and experience how many ways our eyes can be tricked.
Learn about sound using all sorts of cool musical instruments. Experience an effects generator to hear your voice go from chipmunk to Darth Vader.
Create tornados and use a Cartesian diver. See “magic” sand that is afraid of water. Experiment with surface tension.
Create “indoor lightning”, find out if things are conductors or insulators (including you!), and test your nerves with our own electrical buzzer game.
