TUESDAYS: Brooklyn Rangers
Get a bit of fresh air in this special class where scientists become environmental experts! We’ll take nature walks in Prospect Park to collect and identify leaves, hunt for animal tracks and analyze data on city critters. We’ll head back to the lab to take a look at how trash can be turned into treasure and construct water filtration systems that clean up the murkiest muck we can manage to make. How important are insects? What do owls eat for breakfast? How do trees breathe? Let’s get out our magnifying glasses and take a closer look at the amazing world around us! 3-5 Outdoor trips will be scheduled around inclement weather.
TUESDAYS: Toy Lab
Step into the Tiny Scientist Toy Lab for some serious fun! We'll explore the gravity-defying elasticity of a bouncy paddle ball, learn about simple circuits as we make our own version of the HEX bug, zoom through roller coaster physics while we craft our own marble run and more! Learn about the amazing science behind some of your favorite toys and then make your own. Come to play at the Tiny Scientist where the fun is work and work is FUN!
WEDNESDAYS OR THURSDAYS: Physics Phactory!
Have you ever wondered why you scoot faster downhill or watched your spilled chocolate milk make a cool splashy puddle on the floor? Forces and physics are around us every single day! In this amazing After School class, we’ll go bowling with Sir Isaac Newton, build a balloon-powered race car and try our luck at the inertia ring challenge! Let’s explore the mysteries of magnetic fields while we build a compass and then get downright daring during “don’t touch my dominoes”. We’ll make Burping bottles, see how many egg survivors there are in the famous Egg Drop Challenge, make a marble gravitron and more...grab a seat today - spaces are going PHasssstttt!
TUESDAYS: Newton's Notebook
Join some of the most exciting scientists of all time and learn about their spectacular discoveries! Go bowling with Newton as you explore his laws, become botanists creating ecosystems, engineers working on circuitry and paleontologists at their first big dig. This class is designed to help new scientists identify or build on their own interests and recognize that science is everywhere!
WEDNESDAYS OR THURSDAYS: Science of Art!
Ever use centrifugal force to make a one-of-a-kind masterpiece or make a work of art out of marshmallows? If you are a scientist with an artistic streak or vice versa, then this class is for you. We'll make super cool paint sets like famous artists, explore solids and liquids as we make our own amazing lip balm and more! Move over Picasso, step aside Pollock - this is art The Tiny Scientist way!
