Exploring the Universe: Static Electricity @ Kansas Children's Discovery Center

Get charged up by exploring static electricity at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center on Wednesday, May 29 at 1:30. Build an electroscope—a simplified version of one of the tools scientists use to study the invisible forces on Earth and in space. Learn how static electricity works, how scientists can use it to study space, and how it sometimes presents challenges to tools and spacecraft. Program sponsored by the National Informal STEM Education Network.

Regular admission applies, which is $7.75 for children and adults, $6.75 for seniors, and free for infants under 12 months and Discovery Center members. Admission also lets you play all day at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center with over 15,000 square feet of indoor educational exhibits exploring science, careers, art, building and more, plus a 4.5 acre certified Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom.
