September Class Topics:
Weather Watchers
Grade Levels: K – 4th
Maximum: 10 participants
Weather events such as clouds, lightning, and tornadoes can be so astounding that we sometimes forget that it isn’t magic – it is SCIENCE! With Weather Watchers, participants step into the shoes of meteorologists and learn the secrets behind the formation of local weather events. Interactive demonstrations allow the participants to watch the development of clouds, lightning, and tornadoes in the classroom. Participants will work together to create their own weather station equipped with a barometer, anemometer, and a weather vane. Together, they will explore why these local weather events are so important to native animals and plants. Then participants will collect data and become citizen scientists.
All About Squid
Grade Levels: 5th – 12th
Maximum: 15 participants
Investigate the amazing body structure of these squishy cephalopods! In this interactive class, participants will dissect a squid and study how their unique design allows them to catch food, evade predators, and thrive in oceans all around the globe.
