Wind-Blown


Can you think of things that move or make sound when the wind blows? We will create and play with all kinds of things that need wind to make them go.

Wind-Powered Wonders


Together we will use our creativity to discover the effects of wind on objects that we make.

Build a little sailboat and experiment with wind and different types of sails. Weather permitting, we will test them out at the pond.


Ages 10-12

In this class we will do a series of experiments to understand what makes air move. We will find ways to see convection currents in action and relate this to the weather that we experience everyday
