Messy Science: Earth

Messy Science: Earth

Saturday, September 9, 2017
12–3 p.m.
Logan Heights Branch Library
567 S 28th St., San Diego, CA 92113

In this workshop we explore the beauty, mysteries and facts about our planet. Using tools and materials from our world we will re-enact some of the physics, chemistry, and biology that make earth unique in the Known Space.… Hands-on activities will be loud and messy as students design, test, throw and stomp on things focusing on aspects of glaciers, volcanoes, earthquakes, landslides, permafrost, sea level rise and tsunamis.

The Physics of Fidget Spinners

The Physics of Fidget Spinners

Saturday, September 23, 2017
12–3 p.m.
Logan Heights Branch Library
567 S 28th St., San Diego, CA 92113

Ever wonder why your friend's fidget spinner spins longer than yours?  Why some spinners are louder than others?  In this workshop, the physics of fidget spinners become tangible, unlocking a world of intuition!  Join us to explore a fantastic phenomenon where energy is conserved, and entropy is increasing.  Witness, first hand, the transitions from chemistry, to motion to heat.  See the forces of tension and gravity. Learn how a fidget spinner is a ticket to exploring the laws that shape our universe.  In this workshop class you can rest assured that the teacher will not confiscate your fidget spinner.
