Our 45 minute assemblies translate standards to practices with the CA Next Generation Science Standards (CA NGSS), STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering & Math.
EXERCISING MINDS with STEM:
Hands-on experiments that children can do to make STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) real, and easier to understand and fun to learn. Children have a natural curiosity about the world around them. This natural desire is the catalyst to promote STEM concepts and literacy.
The objective of this assembly is to share hands-on experiments that children can do to make STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) easier to understand and fun to learn. Children have a natural curiosity about the world around them. This natural desire is the catalyst to promote STEM concepts and literacy.
Analyze how an invisible force causes steel spheres to accelerate. Witness how sound vibrations move a ball and make cans scream. Fool your eyes with a banana. We’ll test solubility of fossil based styrofoam and renewable ecofoam. Watch water curve from centripetal force and golf balls float in water.
May the force be with you: our atmosphere. Are you stronger than air? Can a bowling ball float? Learn about the layers of our atmosphere that surround and protect the Earth. Experience the wonders of atmospheric pressure in this active learning program.
Through the science of leverage, student volunteers will pick up classmates and their teachers with one hand. A bicycle wheel defies gravity while spinning suspended in the air. The Harry Potter invisibility cloak is no longer fiction, using light refraction the students learn how to make their own. A simple chemical reaction involving different densities creates a modern lava lamp. In addition, the students will discover the following: rotational energy, light photons, Magnus effect, angular momentum, linking clips and more.
Get Excited About Science. Enthusiastic children make great learners. This assembly excites the children’s imagination and desire to learn about science. They see scientific principles in action. Using many household (everyday common items) objects to bring science alive. Children will go back to class, eager to learn more science.
Write your name with a rock, defy gravity with rising beads, and walk a pet can. Is this science or magic? Laws of motion in action. Become a human magnet. Burn holes in paper without flames. Observe pasta hold up a bucket of sand.
The Science of Flight: From A to Z. What do airplanes and toilet paper have in common? Find out why birds walked (just kidding) until Daniel Bernoulli discovered the science of moving air by experimenting with water. Learn about the history and science of flight. You’ll be carried up, up, and away by this interactive and educational assembly.
Think like a scientist. Investigating and experimentation come together using the Scientific Method! Your students will learn the steps involved in conducting experiments. Many exciting experiments will be shared with help from the young scientists in the audience.
