Explore the universe yourself in this workshop that tells you everything you needed to know about the night sky - and helps you build the tools to study it! Students learn about comets, stars, galaxies and the big bang, then build their own astronomical instruments to take home!

See the the unexpected and amazing affects of gravity and other strange forces in this workshop – and how scientists and engineers make use of them. Students see why demonstrations of Netwon’s Laws show how strange they are (including the famous "tablecloth from under a dinner setting") and make – and take home – a Gravity Bird, an impossibly-balancing toy.
