Saturday Science

The second Saturday of every month, we focus on a different science-related theme! The program includes a two-hour, hands-on class followed by a show at the Mayborn Science Theater.

Upcoming classes

Gross Science (Age 6-12)
Call it the Ewww! factor, but nothing engages kids in science more than a down and dirty hands-on experiments. We’ll inspire students while reinforcing science concepts with these icky, creepy, smelly and gross investigations. Kids will check out the layers of their skin and learn how to create fake blood, snot and wounds just in time for Halloween! Carroll Beckom is an educational program assistant at the Mayborn Science Theater. (1 meeting)
Oct 8  SAT     1-4 pm     Cost/$39

Invention Convention (Age 6-12)
Come up with an invention using your creativity. Develop a structure that can support weight and find out how inventors come up with cool ideas. Enter your project in the National Museum of Education’s invention competition. Included is a show at the CTC Mayborn Planetarium. Bring a notebook and something to write with plus a snack and drink for the break. Carroll Beckom  (see Gross Science). (1 meeting)
