Who Haz What: A Closer Look - 1.5 hours, $30.00 surcharge

  • Classroom Chemistry 

Sugar and salt may look similar, but have you ever seen them under 10,000x magnification? See the microscopic differences between their structures through magnification. Students will be amazed examining amorphous and crystalline samples up close with the scanning electron microscope (SEM). This program is the same as our standard Who Haz What program with an additional 30 minutes dedicated to SEM exploration.

Additional Program Requirements: a white surface or projection screen, 2 or more electrical outlets

Who Haz What?

  • Classroom Chemistry

Can your team identify the mystery spill? As members of an emergency response team, students test several "hazardous" substances to determine their physical and chemical properties.

Complete the Circuit

  • Electricity and Magnetism
  • Mechanisms Using Electricity

Has the house been wired to code? As electricians, students learn how to draw the diagrams for simple, series, and parallel circuits. They build each circuit on an electrical "house" to activate lights, a doorbell, and a window alarm.

Weather Works

  • Weather Watch

What are the driving forces of weather? What makes the wind blow? Students will get a taste of meteorology as they discover how the Sun influences weather patterns, make a take-home weather instrument, and even hold a cloud in their hands!
