Catapults a-flinging and penguins a-waddling
Animal footprints tracking through snow
These are a few of our favorite things!
Snow covered footprints and winter fun science
Snowflakes and snowballs
And STEM-filled demos
We’ll bring the science and hope that there’s snow
Can’t wait to see you….Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho!
Pop-Your Top/Flying Film Canisters aka Alka Seltzer Rockets
Fuel a film canister rocket with our favorite famous fizzing tablet and water. How much fuel (aka bubbles of carbon dioxide) will it take for your rocket to launch the highest? Add some rocket science and fizzy, foamy, fun to your day with this classic experiment that is not short on bubbles or fun!
Design and build a launching machine to send a snowball soaring! Can your catapult send the snowballs the furthest? Can it fly with enough force to knock down a snow fortress?
Have you ever seen animal footprints in the snow? Learn about different animal tracks and discover the wonders of the winter season with a closer look at how animals stay warm this time of year. Make and take a waddling penguin craft home.
