Some of their favorites were: Mix it up! Rev it up! Shock it to me!
At the "Mix it up!" station, students experimented with various chemical reactions in order to produce energy. Students are beginning to understand how chemical reactions help us to perform certain tasks in our everyday world.
At the "Rev it Up!" activity, participants took part in "The Roadtrip Challenge" computer game. Students attempted to go from place to place in the most efficient manner, as this is becoming increasingly important.
Another favorite was "Shock it to Me!" This station allowed students to get up close and personal with electricity using handheld generators, batteries, magnets and a Tesla Coil. Students also learned the importance of completing circuits in order to make electricity travel from one point to another.
