Robots, Energy & Bio-Beasts

Energy Burst!
Explore the energy of motion as you pop, jump and flip with hopping, swimming and swinging toys. Check out the kinetic energy in rubber band-wound gadgets and reach your potential with the Catapult take-home.

All About Animals
What is an animal? Explore the animal kingdom and learn about the habitats, anatomy and life cycles of your favorite creatures. Experiment with animal calls and camouflage, and get your own Animal tracks kit to use at home.

Life In The Sea
The ocean holds many mysteries. You will learn about its diverse life forms—from plankton to whales! You'll discover underwater habitats, and learn how humans can help protect ocean life. The Anaglyph Sea Puzzle lets you dive in and take the ocean home!

Moving Motion
Catapult into Newton's three laws of motion! Yank a cloth from under dishes, send crash test dummies flying and launch mini-rockets across the room. You'll see action–reaction forces at work with the twirling Newton Spinner take-home.

Radical Robots
Become wrapped up in the world of robotics! Volunteers act out a robot, remote control device and an automaton. You'll control an automaton through sound and make a soccer robot score a goal! Then you'll build your own Robot Hand—a human-like end effector.

Mix It Up 
It’s time to shake up solutions and explore mixture chemistry. You will sort out mixtures, clear color from a watery solution and see how useful a suspension can be. The Super Sorter gives you the tools to sort mixtures at home!
