Learn what it takes to be a scientist by testing, tweaking and retesting. Complete a variety of experiments, like a viscosity investigation and a shiny penny challenge, to see if you have what it takes!

Use natural forces and your own imagination to make something happen. Make a marble roller coaster, a Keva contraption and a Rube Goldberg device with your class!
Lights, Camera, Action!
Learn about optics and filming techniques. Create a mini video and a stop-motion video with friends.
Toys in Motion
Open-ended challenges encourage curious minds! Make mechanical toys, like automata, and learn basic programming skills to make a Pico Cricket robot.
