Magnets: The Rules of Attraction
Magnets can generate electricity and electricity can generate a magnet. It's just that simple ... or is it? Check out some high-powered magnetic fields in action!
Polymers are everywhere, including our homes, our food and even our bodies! Join us as we use polymers to make slime - the gooier, the better!
Experience how Newton's laws can make your head spin. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction - after you overcome inertia! We apply laws of motion to rotating objects.
Strange Magnetic Materials
Magnets aren't just fridge decorations anymore. See everything from liquid magnets to floating magnets, and learn how scientists incorporate them into high-tech devices.
Super Sonic Showcase
Just what is sound after all? Come hear for yourself! Sound waves can come from some unexpected sources and combine to make some unexpected (and sometimes annoying) noises!
Explore the science behind lightning and discover how we make an indoor lightning storm.
