1, Mad Science The Science of Magic Science
How did they do that? It must have been magic! No...it was the clever application of scientific knowledge! As an opener, students will be dazzled by magic with our disappearing rabbit... but is it really magic? We'll challenge them to employ their mind, body and all five senses to determine the explanation of our tricks! During this class they will see and try some of the most classic magic tricks - the Illusion Box,various handkerchief tricks and some newer tricks like Hydrophobic Experience.

Mad Science, Mad Science of Long Island Harnessing Heat (Hands-On Workshop) Other,
Science
**Harnessing Heat** Fast moving molecules are the main attraction in this exploration of energy and heat. We’ll show you how air behaves when heated or cooled, and launch a mini rocket launch to study the properties of heat. Learn about states of matter turning sugar into floss while making your very own cotton candy to eat! (Not recommended for groups with food allergies, diabetes, or kosher concerns) Mad Science Enrichment Programs are fun explorations into science and technology, and they encourage informal learning through hands-on experience. All Mad Science workshops include a lot of fascinating equipment, supplies, and take-home materials which the children build themselves. The Mad Science mission is to spark the imagination and curiosity of children everywhere by providing them with fun, entertaining, and educational activities which instill a clear understanding of what science really is, and how it affects the world around them.

Seeman, Laurie From Waterdrop to Watershed Nature- Environment,
Science,
Visual Arts- Other
Strawtown invites participants to learn fascinating and important new things about water and water habitats through hands-on Art and Science workshops. We begin with a discussion about the many ways we use, appreciate and interact with water. We take a close look at one drop of water, and how it travels in a larger vase of water. Participants make observations about what they see. We look at how one tinted drop of water falls into a vortex of water, and participants relate this to other experiences they have with water. Participants make ink drop paintings using the same scientific materials with which we just worked. They experiment with the way the ink drop moves around on the wet and/or dry paper. With watercolor pencils they personalize their paintings. With volunteers we demonstrate what a watershed is. With different earth materials, we look at how raindrops fall onto a “mountain”, and create a watershed with tributaries, ponds, lakes, and oceans. Participants learn to see the connection between the water cycle and human activity with regard for woodlands, wetland habitats, grasslands, soil, and geology, and animal bio-diversity.
