HYPE- Mad Science
Hosted by: Hill Youth Partnership for Enrichment
May 16 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmAdmission: $0.00
During this event children will become science researchers.
In Science of Toys, children test, play, and ponder over what makes toys work. They spin into action with kinetic toys. Children balance toy bugs and birds to reveal their centers of gravity. They learn that opposites attract with magnetic toys and then take a turn at creating a gear train.
Dry Ice Capades provides children the opportunity to probe the shifting states of matter through a series of engaging demonstrations. Students observe a shift of states from solid to liquid right before their eyes. Dry ice – the star of the show – under the guidance of the instructor, demonstrates the concept of sublimation.
The Hill Youth Partnership for Enrichment (HYPE) is a grassroots collaborative effort of Hill District youth service providers, the Hill District Education Council, Pittsburgh Public Schools, and community members, focusing on engaging more youth from kindergarten through eighth grade in afterschool and summer programs.
