Oct-Nov (Force, Motion, Energy)
10:00 am - Pressure Play (Hands-On)
Even though we cannot easily see air, we can readily feel its push or pull on us and the environment. Experience the wind's (and your breath's) power in this gusty Studio.

11:00 am - The Laws of Motion (Hands-On)
All objects in the universe obey three simple rules (well, almost all of them). Test out and experience the proof behind the physics pudding for yourself.

1:00 pm - Through Space and Time (Brain Teaser)
While Einstein and several others have proved that space and time are united, we usually experience them here on Earth separately. Can you untangle the two in these brain teasers?
