trapped and how we can use it better. Light, heat, electricity and
sound are all explored. Be amazed as we fish for feathers with
electrons and conduct hair raising experiments with an
electrostatic generator. Discover the light properties of colors, use a
prism to separate the wavelengths of light, and mix things up
with a Technicolor Blender. Watch an underwater volcano
demonstrate the properties of heat and bounce with Boinks while
connecting with kinetic energy. Click here for flyer.
