Advanced Robotics-Jungle Robot  

The Ultimate Experience: Build and take home the Jungle Robot, an advanced-level robot. Also, put your imagination and skills to the test and work in small groups to build different robotic creatures. Test them for speed, strength and endurance. The robots built in this section are not taken home, but parts are reused to build yet another robotic creation. Test your creations in Sumo battles, tugs of war and vehicle distance timings.

Electronic Lab Workshop- 30 Electronic Gadgets  

30 different projects and experiments are built with your own electronic kit to keep in this hands-on workshop. The Science Electronics Lab will stimulate kids’ minds by using easy to understand experiments to increase their knowledge of electronics. Science project ideas will come alive as they build the 30 projects while working with Electronic Circuits. The electronics kit is reusable. Have fun designing your own projects once you’ve built all 30. Kids can proceed at their own pace. Each participant will keep: an 80 page manual, 1 solderless circuit board, 12 resistors, 2 capacitors, 2 light-emitting diodes, 2 transistors, 1 battery snap, 1 diode, 1 speaker, 1 timer, 1 photocell, 1 rectifier, 1 potentiometer, and 1 switch. Learn the ins and outs of how they work. Kids will be grouped by age. Ages 7 - 12

Hover Craft- Design Your Own Vehicle- Egg Drop Car  

Do you want to design and build things that you create, not just a model you purchase? Well this is the place for you. Build and keep an air powered Hover Craft. You make it defy gravity. Once it's up and moving, then using your creativity, control its direction. You will also get to build and take home your own super car powered by more than one source of energy. This can be one crazy looking vehicle. We provide you with many materials for that dynamic vehicle that you will build. Finally, you will also get to build an Egg Drop Car. The purpose is to build a gravity vehicle that can cushion a raw egg as the car holding the egg is dropped from a high height. We provide you with the material to cushion the fall. You have to be creative. In these three challenges in one workshop, you will learn about Laws of Motion, Energy, Air Pressure, Friction, Lift, Speed, and Acceleration. You are never too young to learn and have fun in a Sciensational hands-on way.
