Long Island Science Center, The Place for Learning FORCE AND FRICTION Science
Students will gain an enduring understanding of the concepts of force, motion, and friction through a series of hands-on, highly engaging activities. They will participate in hypothesis formulation, data collecting and problem solving while utilizing concepts of push/pull, momentum, conservation and transference of energy. Each child will create a spinner to take home that illustrates these ideas. 1st - 4th grade

Mad Science, Mad Science of Long Island Color Lab (Preschool Workshop) Other,
Science
** Color Lab ** This workshop will introduce preschoolers to the exciting world of color. They will make a new friend while learning about the colors of the rainbow and will experiment with their creative side during an activity on color mixing. Demostrations will be conducted to introduce students to the primary colors as well as color mixing. 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. 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.

Mad Science, Mad Science of Long Island Wacky Waves (Hands-On Workshop) Other,
Science
**Wacky Waves** Create your own multi density wave bottles while learning about water, waves and the environment. Simulate the effects of an ocean oil spill and develop creative techniques to clean it up! Take home a “Wave Motion Modulator”. 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.

1, Mad Science Wacky Waves Science
Wacky Waves combines three demonstrations and three activities in this exciting introduction to one of life's fundamentals - water. Students will explore four facets of this fascinating substance: density, water as the universal solvent, water pollution and the dynamics of waves. Eggbert and Megg, our hard-boiled friends, will introduce and illustrate density. Since water is a universal solvent, we will explain the incredible phenomena of hydrophobic sand!
