The theme of the night is Amusement Park Science!Spins, drops, and twists of amusement parks have thrilled both kids and adults for ages. But, how often do we take the time to think about the science involved in the loop-de-loops of roller coasters, the vertical motion of the carousel, and the wackiness of Fun Houses? In this family science night theme, children and parents together will explore gravity as they create miniature roller coasters, experience the power of springs as they make their own pinball machines, and test their strength while learning about air and water power.
