SPA SCIENCE WORKSHOP SERIES - Ages 8-12

Cosmetic companies employ teams of scientists to develop and test each new line of skin care product, perfume, bath product, and soap. In this workshop series, students learn the science behind several spa essentials, and create many products of their own. Workshop fee includes all lab costs.

Aerogel  Friday, February 23  10:00am-12:00pm  REGISTER

Discover the amazing NASA material, Aerogel! Students learn about this “frozen smoke” and experiment with its hydrophobic property by cleaning up an oil spill. Next, we explore magic sand and create a lava test tube!

Electronic Art  Friday, March 23  10:00am-12:00pm  REGISTER

Learn about electronics and circuits while creating wearables, pennants or plush toy monsters! Students sew with conductive thread instead of soldering to fabricate a unique LED crafts.

Suminagashi Art  Friday, April 27  10:00am-12:00pm  REGISTER

Learn about surface tension and create beautiful works of art with the Japanese art of suminagashi! **Wear clothes appropriate to paint in.

Muscle and Bone  Friday, May 18  10:00am-12:00pm  REGISTER

Together we break chicken bones by applying a load until we reach a fracture point. In teams, students design either a splint or a cast to mend the broken bones. Once set, designs are tested by applying the previous load. As biomedical engineers in training, students study devices used in the recovery of a strained muscles. Teams engineer their own designed device to help an injured bicep bend with a mechanical advantage.
