Virtual Programs


Mad Science Wednesday Workshops!

mad science workshops graphic June: Movie Effects Virtual Workshop - This virtual experience is presented in real-time. The instructor will dispel common movie myths by interactively demonstrating how movie makers create fake snow, engineer sound effects, and use 3D technology to trick our brains and to make a story feel more real. We will then work together to create a flip animation book to make a mini movie.
July: Mad Machines Workshop - Discover how simple machines make our lives easier. Learn about the six different types of simple machines: the screw, lever, inclined plane, wedge, pulley, and wheel and axle. You'll launch with levers, secure with screws, and work with wedges through hands-on activities! Then, apply your newfound mechanical knowledge by building your very own Drag Racer!
