On October 27, 2007, at the Exploratorium, children can explore the ways that seeing may or may not be believing at a day of science classes. Families must be Exploratorium members to participate. The class schedule is as follows:

Ages 3-4 with Adult Companion
Squeezy Lights

Learn about circuits and make a toy with a squeeze-sensitive, light-up nose to take home.

Ages 5-6
Hair-Raising Races

Play with static electricity: make your hair stand on end, shock your friends, and race soda cans with charged balloons.

Ages 7-9
Solar Cars and Whirligigs

In this class, you’ll learn about circuits by harnessing the sun’s energy to power cars and whirligigs. Note: there is an additional materials fee for this class.

Ages 10-12

You will get very comfortable with electrical circuits in this class by creating your own flashlight to take home.
