Sciensational Workshops for Kids, Inc. is dedicated to providing the highest quality programs to make science interesting, fun and educational for elementary-school age children in a hands-on approach.
Students who sign up for a morning and afternoon class will be provided supervision from 12-12:30. Bring a sack lunch. Classes are held Monday through Friday at SWIC.
June 5-9 • 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Follow Me Robot
How would you like to build a robot that has four built-in microphones? It will detect the sound source and in turn it will move and turn accordingly. It is your own robot to build and take home. Wow! It starts flashing and plays Do Re Mi. Make it move the way you want it to move. It is so smart. It will
move in its own routine if it does not get a signal in 1 minute. It will go to sleep if you do not issue any commands in 90 seconds. However, you can wake it up. Learn about the different gears and sensors as you build it. Get to build other robots working in groups. Join in our
sumo wrestling and obstacle course events with what you have built. See everything happening as you build. That's the Sciensational way!
Course Number: SCI 155-001
June 5-9 • 12:30-3:30 p.m.
Learn about electronics the best way possible. You will experiment and take home your own electronic lab kit. You will get to build a super race car engine sound, electric fan, motion detector, power microphone, trombone sounds, space war sounds and so many more neat projects. That's not all. It is not just about
building. You will learn what direct current is and which materials conduct electricity. Learn what happens when you place batteries in series. Learn what resistors and capacitors do and so much more. Better yet, make your own battery. Make a mind reading game, a musical doorbell and a lie detector,
control electronic currents by the clap of your hands, and still more than that. Yes, it is Sciensational Workshops' way of science. Fun, hands-on and educational. Kids will be grouped by age.

Arcade Electronics Galore
Get ready to build and play your own arcade games and more. You will have at your disposal resistors, switches, wires, LED diodes, transistors and more. Do not get overwhelmed. Building with electronics is fun. You will program the spinning light fan to display different sayings. Build and play a home run derby game.
See who gets the most home runs before getting 10 outs. A winning song will cheer. Build circuits to test your memory. Build an electronic circuit that plays the card game 21. You can learn to program the circuit board to emit different funky sounds. Play with the disco ball, sirens or a light show.
Learn the effects of the different electronic components. Learn what amps, volts, resistance and power are. Yes, this is Sciensational Workshops learn by doing. That is STEM.

CSI – Crime Scene Investigation
You will be the super science sleuths. Have fun learning about forensics, crime scene investigations and crime lab chemistry as you perform as many as 15 different experiments designed to show you just how those tricky cases are solved. Search for the evidence, gather clues and discover how science can help solve
a mystery. Participants will: Dust for fingerprints, analyze handwriting, test for blood type using simulated blood, examine hair and clothing fibers, practice chemistry to identify mystery substances and much more. Participants will then use their skills to solve crimes of the

3D Illumination Electronics
Experiment, have fun and take home your own 3D illumination electronic kit. The first of its kind and fantastic! There will be exciting light effects. See a three-color light tunnel. Activities include building your own security house. No one will enter as the alarm sounds and color LED flashes.
Play button ball or hole ball. Build a projector that will show six cool images. Use your 3D color glasses. Build a house with lights. Join Sciensational Workshops' way of learning, where it is hands on and fun. That is STEM.
Course Number: SCI 165-003
June 26-30 • 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Activities include: Work with an advanced three-dimensional construction kit that is yours to keep and take home. Design and build simple or complex models of a vehicle, a robot or buildings. You will also get your own 3-volt geared motor to power up a moveable radar surveyor. Learn the many ways you can
make your motor run. Hands on is the only way, so prepare to build from directions and from your own imagination!
