COLLINS FAMILY MY BIG BACKYARD

The world of science is every child’s playground in the Collins Family My Big Backyard! Children will step into the backyard wonderland of an imaginative young inventor named CJ. Throughout CJ’s backyard children will encounter inventions that will inspire everyone, from the littlest scientist to the more seasoned of experimenters.

It's Alive at Tellus Science Museum

IT'S ALIVE

Kindergartners will discover that bugs are living things, compare bugs to other animals, and use their classification skills to compare insects and arachnids. In the Collins Family My Big Backyard gallery, students will have the opportunity to match the life cycle of various insects and explore other interactive exhibits of the gallery. Program will run for two hours.

Magnet Mania at Tellus Science Museum

MAGNET MANIA

First graders will explore magnetic attraction and repulsion through prediction and experimentation. Hands-on exploration of magnets encourages students to discover what objects are magnetic and whether magnets attract through other materials. Investigation of magnets will include exhibits in the workshop area of the Collins Family My Big Backyard gallery. Program will run for two hours.

 

What's the Matter at Tellus Science Museum

WHAT'S THE MATTER

Second graders will examine the states of matter. “Chilling” demonstrations using liquid nitrogen allow students to experience condensation and evaporation. Students find out how molecules behave when matter changes from state to state and will take part in a tasty experiment while changing a liquid to a solid. Time will be given for exploration of the Collins Family My Big Backyard gallery. Program will run for two hours.

Energy Quest: Light at Tellus Science Museum

ENERGY QUEST: LIGHT

Enhance your fourth graders’ understanding of the nature of light with this “enlightening” program, which introduces light as a form of energy. Students will conduct hands-on experiments into the properties of light, how it is affected by lenses, mirrors, and prisms, and explore concepts such as refraction, reflection, absorption, opaque, translucent and transparent. Students will also get a firsthand opportunity to experience light exhibits in Collins Family My Big Backyard gallery. Program will run for two hours.

Magnet Mania at Tellus Science Museum

MAGNET MANIA

Fifth graders will build on their magnetic knowledge as they are encouraged to find out what a magnetic field will do and how to create a magnet usingelectricity. Students will further their knowledge while experimenting with magnets, electromagnets, and electricity in the garage exhibit in the Collins Family My Big Backyard gallery. Program will run for two hours.

Energy Quest: Electricity at Tellus Science Museum

ENERGY QUEST: ELECTRICITY

Highlight your fifth grade study of electrical energy with this electrifying program. This program introduces students to the “hair-raising” topic of static electricity, gives them the basics for designing their own circuit boards and allows them to explore electricity and magnetism in the garage exhibit in the Collins Family My Big Backyard gallery. Program will run for two hours.
