About this event


We're sorry, but this program is over. The last meeting was Wednesday, January 27, 2021.

What goes Bang! Boom! Whizz! and flies through the air? Explore how physics and chemistry apply to nature with fun experiments about aerodynamic adaptations and chemical reactions. Join us online once a week as we share a ton of activities to keep you busy (and learning!) A kit with all the needed supplies is included for this program. Can't make the scheduled time? Don't worry - you can watch the recording anytime during the week to catch up!

  • Week 1: Bird wings and the four forces of flight
  • Week 2: Flight adaptations of insects and arachnids
  • Week 3: Seed dispersal
  • Week 4: Explosive chemical reactions in nature

Kits are available for pickup January 4, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. at Lost Valley Visitor Center and Prairieview Education Center. Select a pickup location when you register.
