C.S.I. (Children's Science Institute)

Children's Science Institute

Explore the most puzzling scientific questions and draw scientific conclusions at the Children’s Science Institute at Wagner College. The program is completely hands-on with experiments that will make science come alive for the science enthusiast. Each week, children (ages 7 – 13) will investigate and experiment with a different science principle and record those findings in his personalized science journal.

Molecules in Motion

How does matter move from one phase to another? Students will illustrate the various states of change by conducting energy-based experiments to speed molecules up, or slow them down.

Breaking and Making Bonds

While investigating chemical reactions, students will be learn about how new substances are formed and engineer experiments to cause different physical and chemical changes. Students also explore endothermic and exothermic reactions and will perform an engineering activity to design a device using an exothermic reaction.
