MONDAYS OR 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.
WEDNESDAYS OR THURSDAYS: Super Sleuths
Dbo zpv sfbe uijt nfttbhf? I didn’t think so! The most sophisticated criminal teams hide their communications in code. Scientists in this class become crime-fighting super sleuths by looking for clues, collecting evidence and taking it into the lab to study! We’ll learn about blood typing, collect fibers to analyze with laser pens and uncover clues hidden in secret messages. Let’s go microscopic and learn to distinguish between the tiniest of fibers. At the end of this action-packed class, we’ll use all of our super sleuth tools and skills to answer the age-old question, “whodunit?” when we stumble on a real crime scene! Come experience the satisfaction of a crime well solved………. BANDITS BEWARE!
MONDAYS OR TUESDAYS: 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!
WEDNESDAYS OR THURSDAYS: Science of Magic
COME ONE, COME ALL..to ten weeks of jaw-dropping experimentation during the Science of Magic! Scientists will learn how to fool family and friends as we investigate the chemistry, biology, and physics behind super cool magic tricks. We will investigate solids and liquids and put out a match without touching it. Explore the wonders of inertia and learn the secret behind the magic tablecloth trick. We’ll put a “hole” in our hand during an optical illusion class, and use static electricity to make things levitate. Come join us at The Tiny Scientist this Spring to learn about the magical world of science!
MONDAYS OR 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: Maker Magic
Want to explore circuits and make wristbands that light up the night, or study air pressure before building your own personal snow globe? This after-school program is an awesome combination of science and engineering. Makers in this hands-on class will learn about fundamental science concepts and then use what they learn to create amazing projects to take home. We'll learn about water and make balloon powered boats, study the night sky and make constellation "keychains", set off sparklers we make from scratch and more! Calling all tinkerers!
