Education Outreach

Let ScienceWorks come to you!

Our outreach program brings ScienceWorks educators right to your classroom or community event. We offer a variety of science demonstrations and hands-on workshops that inspire and educate.

Hands-On Workshops: Inside the Classroom

Our ScienceWorks educators will come to you! Our staff will visit your class for plenty of hands-on, inquiry-driven fun. Are you ready for NGSS-aligned, hands-on, STEM activities for your group? We offer school outreach programs starting with your Preschoolers going up to High School Students!

  • Show and Share Visits (PreK - 2): Our ScienceWorks staff will come with interesting specimens and stories from the field as a launch point into hands-on inquiry. Students can investigate, observe, and handle specimens like rocks, fossils, bones, and more.

 

  • LEGO Engineering (PreK - 12): In our popular LEGO engineering workshops, students work together to solve problems, use critical thinking skills, and work together in order to complete engineering challenges.

 

  • Circuitry and Robotics (PreK - 8): This workshops acts as an introduction to robotics and coding for our young students. For older students we take a deeper dive in robotics and circuitry by building their very own take home bot! NOTE: Circuitry and Robotics includes an additional materials fees for take home bots.

 

  • Chain Reaction Machines (PreK - 12): This classic STEM workshop combines engineering and design skills to challenge students to build a Chain Reaction Machine. Students are tasked with designing a series of chain reactions in order to move their marble or ball from one point to another. A great launching or culminating activity for a unit on forces.

 

  • DIY Mini Museum (3 - 12): Be your very own Museum Curator in this new outreach program! Students dissect owl pellets and design their very own mini-museum. This workshop requires a minimum of 2 days and can be done up to a 4-day outreach program. NOTE: This workshop includes a $30 materials fee per classroom.
