Science Demos

DEMONSTRATIONS  Length: 30 minutes Maximum for each session: 40 individuals (exception: Animal Adaptations, Colors of Combustion and Bright Science is limited to 30 individuals)

Increase the educational value of your self-directed group visit by adding an engaging Science Demonstration! These demonstrations take place in a Lab Room for your group alone. Some audience participation is part of the show. The content supports Indiana Academic Standards in Science, and the presentation is adjusted as appropriate for the group’s grade level. Demonstrations must be booked when you schedule and require an extra per-person fee.

Animal Adaptations Learn what makes animals suited to their environments through close encounters with some of WonderLab’s resident creatures.

• Beautiful Bizarre Bugs Insects and their relatives are the most diverse creatures in the animal kingdom. Get up close with some of WonderLab’s amazing arthropods, and learn what makes them so unique and so successful.

• Stuffee and the Human Body We’re all different on the outside, but we’re all the same inside. Discover the body’s organs, especially the digestive and cardiovascular systems, as we open up Stuffee, a huge “stuffed” doll, and see what’s inside. Includes discussion about nutrition.

Colors of Combustion Investigate the science of fire in a visually spectacular demonstration of foot-tall colored flames! Learn about energy from light and how different chemicals produce flames of different colors. The demonstration covers real-world applications, such as fireworks, and emphasizes fire safety.

Static Electricity Take part in some hair-raising experiments using the Van de Graaff generator, a machine that produces 400,000 volts of static electricity and makes invisible electrical forces dramatically visible. Includes discussion of lightning and lightning safety.

Super Cold Science Heat is a form of energy that affects whether something takes a solid, liquid, or gas form. We’ll have lots of fun demonstrating this with liquid nitrogen, a super cold substance that instantly changes an object’s properties in surprising ways.
