What's an easy way to learn about the force of magnetism? Make it full of unusual stuff that sticks! These two activities are an intriguing and fun introduction to the force of magnetism. The Magnet Wall takes ordinary household objects and tools to their test. The Magnet Table has nuts bolts, and washers to create the most interesting sculptures.

Children will feel the forces of magnetism, use household objects & tools as art, and see their efforts as they build in three-dimensional form.

What happens when you tighten/turn the buttons? Can you make the "waves" look bigger/smaller? How do you "freeze"/stop the string?


Archaeological Dig
The Archaeological Dig site is filled with a wealth of learning opportunities. Children take a task sheet, gloves, goggles, and explorer's hat to complete the uniform. Five types of hidden "artifacts" are buried in a matrix mixture that visitors must patiently dig and brush away. Uncovered artifacts can then be studied via the information boxes provided and a certificate is given to those persistent archaeologists who are able to dig out the artifact(s).

What's Happening Here?
Children can practice fine motor skills, patience, curiosity, reasoning and scientific methods.

Discovery Questions:
Have you ever seen an artifact before? How do they believe that artifacts "get into the ground"? Did you ever think you might be an archaeologist? What do you think you would have to study? What does each tool do?
