Student groups will dissect and identify the anatomy of frogs with assistance from instructors. NGSS Standards: K-LS1-1, 3-LS1-1, 4-LS1-1, 4-LS1-2

 

Cow Eye Dissection
Grades: 3 – 8
Why do cow eyes glow at night? How similar are cow eyes to ours? Explore these questions and more while dissecting a real eyeball! Through this ooey-gooey workshop, learn how each piece of the eye works together to give us sight. Student groups will dissect and identify the anatomy of a cow’s eye with assistance from instructors. NGSS Standards: K-LS1-1, 3-LS1-1, 4-LS1-1, 4-LS1-2

 

Pollinators + Flower Dissection
Grades: Pre K – 2 
How do flowers make seeds? Why are bees so important for growing fruits and vegetables? Explore the dynamic relationship between flowers and pollinators! Students will dissect a flower, create art with the flower, and play a fun game as they pretend to be pollinators! NGSS Standards: K-LS1-1, K-PS3-1, 2-LS2-2

Volcanoes
Grades: 3 – 8
Scientists drill into soil and ice to study Earth’s history. Create volcanic eruptions and study core samples as you drill into your model volcano. Learn about volcanoes and study them like a geologist. Students will create volcanic eruptions with Play-Doh and trade volcanoes with other students who will sample the core. Students will diagram their findings! NGSS Standards: 2-ESS1-1, 2-ESS2-2, 4-ESS2-1, 4-ESS2-2, 4-ESS3-1

 

Space + Satellites
Grades: PreK – 8
