WonderLab’s hands-on activity stations will add STEM learning and fun to your school or special event. Each activity package includes engaging hands-on explorations as well as STEM creations you can take home. We offer themed outreach events in four standard sizes to meet your needs. We can even create hands-on activities specially tailored for your audience and event. See below for themes and pricing.

Let’s Do Chemistry Activity Stations

Ever played Apples to Apples? This chemistry version helps get participants excited about learning chemistry and build confidence in their knowledge of chemistry concepts!

Can you build a battery and turn on the light bulb? With these materials you can! Learn about the flow of electrons and energy conversion with this experiment. 

What makes a black marker black? Are there different colors within various black markers? Using paper chromatography, participants will be able to see what happens when the ink of different black markers gets wet. The colors may surprise you!

Sometimes it’s hard to tell what a specific scent is! With Chemistry Makes Scents, participants explore the differences and similarities shared on a molecular level of two mystery scents. 

What is air pressure doing to objects on Earth? If we vacuumed away that pressure, how would it affect certain objects? Find out with this vacuum chamber experiment.

Ever wonder what makes ice cream different colors? What about make-up? Test out what happens to dye when you change its pH! 

With rocket reactions, participants will test what happens when water, baking soda, and citric acid are mixed together and confined in a test tube. Fire in the hole!

In this experiment, participants will get to create bubbles filled with carbon dioxide gas as a result of dry ice heating up. This process, of going from a solid straight to a gas, is sublimation! Explore how these bubbles are different from standard bubbles.

What IS in the water? Participants will perform various experiments on two water samples to determine what properties make the samples different.

Explore Earth and Space Activity Stations

Ever noticed how lumpy the moon looks? Those lumps are craters! What causes them? In this activity, participants will make their own craters, and learn how they are created!

How do scientists find other planets in our universe? How do they know the size of those planets? With this activity, participants will observe what happens when objects block light and cast shadows, one of the methods scientists use to identify planet size!

Bang! The universe is continuously expanding, but what does that look like, and how does it work? With a group of four, participants will use the tools provided in this activity to see how the universe is expanding!

Have you ever been looking out the car window just to have the sun shine directly in your eyes? Did you reach for your sunglasses to blot out the brightness? With this activity, participants will learn how different filters affect light, and in what way astronomers use them to view the universe!

Is that a man in the moon, or a cow?  What can you spot on the moon? Using binoculars, participants will observe a poster of the moon and seek out ten different animals that are hidden among the image!

How does water affect land? Erosion can happen naturally and slowly, or very quickly due to human impact. In this activity, participants will understand how different landscapes are affected by water and erosion.

Location, location, location! Can you locate the magnetic fields of different celestial bodies? In this activity, participants will use the probe tool to find magnetic fields on the model planetary bodies.

Ground control to Major Tom! In this activity, two participants will act as different roles; one will play Mission Control and the other a Mars rover! Mission Control will give the Mars rover (who is blind folded) directions to navigate the Mars landscape. Can you work together and avoid the obstacles?

Can you balance the Playdough planets? What happens when one is bigger than the other? With this activity, participants will explore how orbiting works with objects in our universe!

Using a solarscope, participants can explore what the Sun looks like! This activity allows the Sun to be safely viewed. What do you notice about it?

Don’t forget your telescope! With this engineering-oriented activity, participants will build their very own space telescope. Make sure it fits in the container so you can take it to space!

Mountains are majestic and beautiful! If you are camping at the base of one, however, you may want to know more about the way rain storms affect that area. With the paper mountains experiment, participants can observe how gravity and land formations impact the flow of water to certain areas!

My very educated mother just….just what? Having a hard time remembering the planets in the solar system? With this activity, participants get to create a pocket model of the solar system! Never forget what planet comes after Jupiter again.

With this experiment, participants will observe coastal sea-level rise. Explore the different environmental effects causing this rise in sea-level and why it’s important to track the changes on coastlines!

With this space themed board game, participants will try to guess their partner’s mystery space object using yes-or-no questions only! First one to guess correctly is the winner.

Ouch! Touching those pesky door handles durin
