Offering a Variety of science programs to supplement your curriculum!
Catch the Science Bug
   

Chemical Change Detectives
When two different substances are put together and they make a new substance that is a chemical change. Simple changes indicate that a chemical change has taken place! Children are taught how to identify this change and them do some reacting of their own!! All products used are non-toxic! (Classroom) 

   

Camouflaging Critters
Camouflaging is an awfully big word but with a meaning that children relate to really well since it pertains to the familiar pastime of hide and seek. Children fist learn about what it means camouflage. Through the identification of animals that are camouflaged and then creating their own camouflaged Gecko, children develop a clear understanding concept. (Classroom) 

   

Dino Dig
Children play the part of a paleontologist as they find and assemble the bones of a wooden dinosaur model! This activity engages students in comparing human bones to dinosaur bones, sorting bones, and sequencing the size of the bones! A key is then used to identify the dinosaur that was built. This program also includes a cast of a dinosaur footprint, tooth and claw! (Classroom) 

   

Ice Fishing Challenge
Can you you catch an ice cube? Try your hand at this inquiry investigation and that also incorporates the engineering design process to find out!!! Students each work at “catching” an ice cube and at the same time learn about solids and liquids! (Classroom) 

   

Nature’s Show and Tell Show
So many unique and interesting things can be found in the great outdoors! Real objects are brought in for a show and tell type program. Objects include deer antlers, galls, rainforest leaves, ostrich egg, bird eggs, nests, insects, and lot more. (Classroom) 

   

Germs - Becoming Aware of the Invisible
Can you eat something that has fallen on the floor? How do diseases spread? So you think your hands or clean? The lab models how germs are spread. Students play detective and figure out the source of the germs. Then students are challenged to further improve on their hand washing practices! (Classroom) 

   

Exploring the Polar Bear
Learn all about the special parts of a polar bear's body that enable the bears to live in bitterly cold climates! A hands-on science experiment further explores one of the polar bear's adaptations. (Classroom) 

   

Apple Investigation
How do scientist do an investigation? This is an inquiry investigation where children gather data to learn more about apples! Data is collected, counted, sorted, and conclusions are made just like real scientists would do! (Classroom) 

   

Freddie the Firefly
Investigate a favorite insect. What do these insects have in common with other insects? Are they becoming more and more rare? Students are given an opportunity to communicate like a firefly. (Classroom) 

   

Beach Basics
This program covers a bunch of topics that children experience first hand at the beach– coast lines, sand, salt water, and shells. Children then rotate to through three activity tables. (Classroom) 

   

Sink or Float?
Although this may sound basic, add a short video clip produced especially for this presentation and lots of hands-on activities and it makes this program a splashing success! (Classroom) 

   

Who Lives in a Coral Reef?
Children learn the about the coral reef environment then apply what they have learned about how fish use the reefs for protection in a hands-on activity. (Classroom) 

   

Footprint Mystery
What is a track? Have you seen any? Children then observe six models of animal tracks to figure out which animal made that particular footprint.  Children then solve a footprint mystery. (Classroom) 

   

Great Pumpkins
This program focuses attention on the parts of a pumpkin, the variety of pumpkins, and a short video clip shows how pumpkins are grown on Hanson Farm in Framingham, MA.  A  teacher-lead experiment follows. (Classroom) 

   

Spying on Spotted Salamanders
Learn what a vernal pool is and why it is important.  Students practice their observation skills by making a salamander out of clay to take home. (Classroom) 

   

The Earth Rocks!
Students see the layers of the earth and why some layers are so important in helping us quench our thirst. Students core through a clay model of the earth and compare the layering. (Classroom) 

   

Raindrops are Tasty!
Where does the rain go?  Why do we need the rain? Can we drink it?  See what happens to raindrops once they hit the earth.  Then experiment with some drops! (Classroom)
