What materials make the best bridge? Can you make a tower out of random objects? Complete different design challenges in this engineering extravaganza.

Students encounter fundamental chemical principles as they investigate the mysterious changes that occur when various solids, liquids, and gases are combined.

Investigate real-world chemistry as we investigate how to clean polluted water, and explore medicine!

Meet Kibo! Kibo is a robot that introduces young scientists to coding using wooden blocks. You’ll practice your coding skills and write your own programs. Plus, decorate Kibo to look like your favorite animal.

Do you want to learn how to code in a fun and interactive way? Guide Dash, the robot, through different challenges by coding them with a tablet. Your students will be able to work together to code Dash to complete the different coding challenges in a fun and engaging way.

Step into the shoes of a geologist to discover the differences between rocks and minerals through hands-on demonstrations and exploration of a variety of Arizona minerals.

How do owls move so quietly, why do they turn their heads so much, and what does an owl eat? Learn about these fascinating birds of prey as we explore owl anatomy, habitats, and diets.

Invention, design, and exploration adventure! Students will work together to design a ramp that will slow down a bouncy ball as it rolls to the end. They will use the Engineering Design Process to understand concepts such as simple machines, energy transfer, conservation, and forces.

Want to code?  Discover how fun coding can be by using Ozobot, pocket-sized coding robots and colors! Your students will explore the basics of coding with these educational robots.

ut on your sleuthing hat and keep your eyes peeled as participants will take notes and observations, check for fingerprints, and crack the case in this fun to solve Arizona Science Center's mystery before it's too late!

Why do our bodies look the way that they do and how are our bodies able to function? Learn how DNA serves as an instruction manual for our bodies by decoding the DNA of a "monster". Students will then be able to see what DNA looks like by completing a Strawberry DNA extraction.

Students will explore the concepts of gravity, motion, and energy while experimenting with marbles and tubes to design and test their own roller coasters.

Using plastic bottles, water, and compressed air, students learn about aerodynamics as they design, test, modify, and launch rockets to altitudes of 100 feet and higher.

Our sun provides us with light to see of course, but do you know our sun "enlightens" our lives in more ways than one? Check out this program as we explore the star that provides light, heat, and energy for our cozy planet earth. You may even be able to make a tasty treat by the time we are done! Available March through October.

Explore the longest system in the human body: the digestive system! Learn about the journey our food takes through our body and how each part of the digestive system helps us get the nutrients we need to survive.

 Using the Engineering Design Process, participants will learn about the laws of physics as they design a rocket that soars through the air!

 How valuable is a drop of water? From crops and canals to water wheels and power, water is a commodity that can’t be wasted. Use engineering to explore all the ways in which water works for us.
