(1 1/2 hrs) $10 per student
Max: 50 students
 

Visit Your Site: (1hr)   $300 first presentation
$275 each for additional on same day
Max: 25 Students 

Learn the science behind cosmetics and skin care products. Students will discuss the function of skin, examine the process and products used to create the lotions and potions they use on their body. They will measure, mix and mold soap and bath fizz while using proper laboratory skills and equipment. (Out programs require use of microwave and freezer.)

 

BE A SCIENTIST! - STATES OF MATTER  Supported by Elizabeth M. Smith, Financial Advisor
1st - 6th Science Center Visit:
(1 3/4hrs) $10 per student
Max: 50 students

Visit Your Site: (1 1/2hrs)   $300 first presentation
$250 each for additional on same day
Max: 25 Students

Explore the states of matter in a creative lab setting.  Presentation allows students to differentiate between solids, liquids and gases.  Children make polymer " Phlubber" and start a crystal garden to take home.  Experimentation culminates in the production of a particularly tasty crystallized concoction, better known as ice cream, . (At your site Crystal gardens are demo garden for classroom only and we ask that the school provides the milk and ice.)

 

CHEMISTRY DETECTIVE
3rd- 7th Science Center Visit:
(1 1/2 hrs) $8 per student
Max: 50 students
Visit Your Site: (1hr)   $235 first presentation
$200 each for additional on same day
Max: 25 Students
Students perform qualitative tests on common house-hold powders, and on a "mystery" powder.  They use analytical thinking and deductive reasoning to solve the identity of the unknown substance.  Concrete ideas about atoms and molecules are formulated as students participate in this challenging program. 

 

GLUEY & GOOEY CHEMISTRY
