Light is fascinating! It can look like a wave or a particle; it can be red, blue or any color of the rainbow; you can even mix all the colors together to get white!  It travels in straight lines and still appears to bend around objects. It can travel through air, but it does not need the air. Unlike sound, light can travel from distant stars through a vacuum and reach us years later, or it can be sent through fiber optic cables and go around the world in less than a second! Does that sound… Read more

Have you ever wondered how fast a heavy object falls compared to a lighter one?  Imagine if you dropped both of them at the same time.  Which would hit the ground first?  Would it be the heavier one because it weighs more?  Or would they hit the ground at the same time?  In the late 1500s C.E. in Italy, Galileo was actually asking some of these same questions and did some tests to answer them.  In this activity, you’ll do some of your own tests to determine… Read more

Have you ever seen a video of a landslide? Landslides are powerful geological events that happen suddenly, causing fear in people who live in areas with unstable hills, slopes and cliff sides. Each year in the United States, landslides can cause billions of dollars in damages, in addition to changing the environment and damaging the surrounding habitats. In this science activity, you will model landslides using a clipboard and pennies, and investigate how friction and the angle of a… Read more
