Defying Gravity (grades 3-4) 9:30-11:30 (max 60 students)
Students will work collectively to design a device that defies gravity. This engaging activity will boost student’s creativity and problem solving skills as they explore principles of magnetism and engineering.  This is a great class to help students think outside the box.

Magnetic Madness (grades K-2) 11:30-1:30 (max 30 students)
School groups will naturally be attracted the variety of magnetism inquiry stations in this class! Dispelling gravity!?!  You’ll have to see it to believe it--in this class students will explore the unique properties of magnets.  At each station they will explore manipulates, make observations and record their thoughts.  By the end of this class, students will be able to make predictions about an object’s magnetic properties.

Mousetrap Racers (grades 5-6) 11:30-1:30 (max 30 students)
In this exciting class students will be introduced to Newton’s laws of motion by building and racing a mousetrap racecar.  Students will learn about potential and kinetic energy while working collaboratively to design a record-breaking vehicle.  Your students will have so much fun they won’t realize they are learning!

2. For those not attending a class above sign up for reduced admission and join us! Siblings and parents who are not attending classes can get reduced admission into the museum.
