Cosmic Deluxe Package (Includes Self-Guided Activity)

    Did you know that white light is really a mixture of different colors? With our easy to construct spectroscope you will witness different rainbow patterns from all kinds of light sources.
  • Glove-A-Phone (Ages 4 & Up)
    Every kid loves noisemakers - the weirder, the better! Try your hand at creating a truly bizarre noisemaker out of a plastic glove, a straw, and a tube. Learn how sound is produced and experiment to see how to make this instrument sing!
  • Rollback Can (Ages 4 & Up)
    What do physicists mean when they talk about energy? What are some different kinds? Learn the difference between kinetic and potential energy with this mysterious rolling object that returns to its starting point. Kids can take it home and continue to explore this seemingly-magical toy!

Slimy Science (30-minute activity)

Whoa! Yuck! Wow! What is it? This is what you’re sure to hear when kids enter our slime lab! Your party will start with a story about oobleck then we’ll explore four different stations all with a new type of slime/oobleck to explore. Is it a liquid? Is it a solid? Maybe it's something else! Find out the answers in our messy (but washable!) science activity.
