Science
SCHOOL PROGRAM INFORMATION The shows are based upon current national Science Education Standards as adopted by the National Science Teacher's Association. ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS - HIGH SCHOOLS MIDDLE/JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS ____________________ The average presentation lasts between 45 and 60 minutes. Q & A time is set aside if requested by the school. Programs of different time spans are available. Many schools opt to have 2 programs allowing for difference in age and grade levels. The content of the shows vary when possible taking into consideration developmental levels of the grade school audiences and also is tied into the current curriculum where possible. The program for the younger children emphasizes that science is fun and worth pursuing with a limited amount of scientific information appropriate for that age group. The program for the older students has the same emphasis but includes a greater amount of age/developmentally appropriate scientific information

**Let's Measure** Preschoolers will learn the basics of measurement during this workshop when they get to measure all kinds of objects using balance beam scales, bathroom scales and even their own feet! Children will be introduced to the concept of estimation and take home a measuring foot to cut out with their parents. These are programs specifically designed for children ages 3 and 4, and take place at your location. Our only requirements are: a room that can be darkened if needed, with tables and chairs where the children can work comfortably; a small table to set up our equipment and access to water and electricity. The children perform experiments, participate in demonstrations and, for most workshops, there is a take home item for each child at the end of the program.
