Rectangles

Need for Seeds

March 1 - 5

How do plants grow and what do they need to thrive?  Observe many types of plants that live right here in Mace Ranch Park and the types of animal and insects that need them.  Learn how to sprout a seed and how to keep it healthy, and the importance of pollinators.

All About You

March 29 - April 2

Students will learn about several systems of the human body, how they work, and how to keep them healthy.  Students will look at x-rays and put together a skeleton, learn about nutrition and the digestive system, and how the circulatory and respiratory systems work with a dissection of sheep organs done by an Explorit educator.

Everyday Engineers

March 8 - 12

Learn about everyday simple machines and how they are used.  Build arches, bridges, and buildings to see how the engineering is different between them.  Assemble simple circuits and make an electromagnet.

Earth Explorations

April 5 - 9

What forces help shape our earth?  Come learn how wind and rain can change a mountain, watch how water changes the landscape, and build a structure that can survive our earthquake shake table.  Learn how geologists study rocks and minerals, and how fossils can help us look into the past.
