Electricity
Static electricity is an electrical charge on the surface of an object. Current electricity is a flow of negative charges through a conductor in a closed circuit. Some materials make good conductors and others make good insulators. Come to the Hands-on Science Lab for six exciting lab stations based on the '4th grade California Science Standards'.

Matter
Come and explore how matter is 'anything that takes up space and has mass,' in our six stations of matter activities. We have created six exciting stations that are based on the 5th grade California Science Standards that will intrigue your students as well as help them understand some important points about matter.

Water
The Water Lab will help your class discover the exciting properties of water. Water can exist in all three states of matter: solid, liquid, and gas. The lab moves through the water cycle between evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. Water is a polar molecule that sticks to itself (cohesion) and sticks to other substances (adhesion). Experience all of these important properties of water at the exciting Hands-on Science Lab based on 5th grade California Science Standards. To view available times and to register, Click here.

Digestion
These six stations deal with life science activities that reinforce the '5th grade California Science Standards'. Students get to analyze and see not only the human digestion system, but also those of herbivores, carnivores, and other omnivores. They also get to see a digestion system of a living organism through microscopes! These fun stations will surely make your stomach rumble. To view available times and to register, Click here.
