Science Shows provide demonstrations using chemistry and physics applications.
Science Shows are $100.00.
–Science of Light and Electricity in America Let there be light! Take a trip to the past to learn about the lightbulb and how we harnessed the power of electricity. This show is sure to make your hair stand as we discover the difference between static and current electricity with Robert J. Van De Graaff’s famous invention. Benjamin Franklin wasn’t the only inventor to use lightning. Watch in amazement as we see Nikola’s extraordinary Tesla coils to create lightning that dances to the beat of an alternating current. Join us today to become electrified with knowledge!
-Don’t Try This At Home Chemistry
Expand your mind with the knowledge of combustion! Discover the difference between solid, liquid and gas and how they react. Things are just heating up as we learn about thermal and exothermic reactions. This chemistry show is too hot to handle so remember, Don’t Try This At Home!
All programs need to be scheduled at least 14 days prior to your visit.
