From chores, to school, to music and birthdays, kids around the world do many of the same things we do! To top it all off, they’ll get a passport full of stamps, to help remember their journey!

Motion Commotion

SC Mathematics standards: 2.MDA.3
Push, pull, force, motion, and gravity—this program explores it all! Discover the forces of the world in motion in this exciting program that will teach students about push vs. pull, mass vs. weight, gravity, friction, and inertia. Students will learn about these forces of motion as well as acceleration, deceleration, and velocity through catapult science, scooter races, and EdVenture's take on tug-of-war.

We will witness the different ways electrons “flow” as we look at the structure of the atom, types of electricity, and it effects on living things. Students will create a human circuit, participate in a Van der Graff demonstration, and even get to try their hands at our “squishy circuits.” This class is sure to be illuminating!
