Education Programming at Your Site

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

This program brings a ScienceWorks instructor into your classroom for either a 1-day, 2-day or a 4-day interactive lesson. Our workshops are NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) aligned and designed to support current curriculum by allowing teachers to select the topic that best suits their classroom need.

Current Topics:

LEGO Engineering

Available for Grades Pre K-8th
Students engineer and build LEGO buildings to withstand various challenges.

 

Circuits and Bots

Busy Bots

Available for Grades Pre K - 2

Students learn about the fundamentals of code and practice programming their busy bots to complete various mazes and tasks.

Snappy Circuitry

Available for Grades 3 - 8

Using a combination of classic circuitry challenges and snap circuits students learn about basic circuitry.

 

Scientific Illustration

Available for K-8th

In this workshop, students work to develop their skills in observations, scientific inquiry, and of course scientific illustration. This workshop highlights ScienceWorks newest exhibit, Sportsology, by focusing on human bones and physiology as the focus of the scientific observation.

 

Magnet Magic 

Available for ages 3 - 5

This program introduces students to scientific inquiry and exploration by experimenting with magnets.
