Category: In-Class Demonstrations

Engage your students in exciting, hands-on STEM activities and small-scale demonstrations. We can do multiple sessions of any of the choices below in a single school day.

Adventures in the Amazon

Hands on activity. Join us as we adventure into the Amazon Rainforest, with introductions to environmental science and how biomimicry is used in everyday life, including a hands-on slime extravaganza!

Acids, Bases, and Ocean Acidification

Small-scale demonstration. Using a homemade pH indicator, students generate hypotheses and examine the acidic and basic properties of a variety of household items. This provides the conceptual framework for students to then participate in an inquiry-driven activity exploring ocean acidification.

The Magic of Static Electricity









Hands-on activity & small-scale demonstration. Through a series of hands-on experiments, students investigate the characteristics of static electricity. We then discuss how static electricity is generated through the use of a Van de Graaff generator.

DNA Extraction











Hands-on activity. Join us as we search for the buried treasure: DNA! Students will learn about the properties of DNA and how we can use household items to extract DNA from fruit.

Wacky Waving Wands

Hands-on activity. Students learn the concept of open and closed circuits through the design of a magical LED wand. We explore insulators, conductors, and the flow of electricity in this hands-on activity.
