  • Tablecloth Trick – a lesson in inertia that explains the popular magician’s trick of yanking a tablecloth from under food and dishes without disturbance.
  • Exploring the Universe: Filtered Light – a collaborative art project that explores light and demonstrates how scientists can use telescopes and other tools to capture and filter different energies to study the universe.
  • Disappearing Water – chemistry demonstration that explores polymers, state changes and gravity, and shows how the super-absorbent properties of sodium polyacrylate can make water vanish.
