Join us for a summer filled with science, learning and wonder at the Children’s Museum of Southeastern CT. We’ll be exploring a different science each week from July 2 to August 24 (from 9:30am-4pm) with demonstrations and hands-on activities. All activities are FREE with Museum admission thanks to the generosity of Pfizer, our Summer Science Days sponsor.
Electricity and Magnetism- July 9-13
This sizzling program explores the power of electricity and magnetism through plasma balls, magnetic rings and more! Experience electricity in action through our exciting Van de Graaff Generator demonstrations. Children can become part of a Human Circuit or use Snap Circuits to make a light glow, rotate a fan or start a motor. We’ll even try to harvest electricity from everyday foods! Guests will also have the chance to experiment and build with magnets along with creating their own magnet craft to take home.
