Edible Engineering: Build a structure using candies that will withstand a simulated earthquake. Tinker with different candy designs to discover what shapes make the strongest structures. Create your own solutions to this edible design challenge, and then see if your candy structure passes the shake table test! You'll get to take your structures home and have fun while learning about design and structural engineering. This activity works well for ages 5 and up.
The Slime Lab: Kids get to work with polymers and create slime in a professional wet lab complete with personal safety equipment as they follow the directions of the experiment with a lab instructor. Each child will be able to take their slime creations home. This lab is best suited for ages 6 and up.
*Not available in June, July, or August. Please note that for safety reasons, children under age 5 are not permitted to enter the labs. The maximum participation capacity is 25 kids. Reservations must be made at least 3 weeks in advance.
