Friday, May 25 | Hovercraft
Take a ride on the KCDC Hovercraft on Friday, May 25 at 10:30 AM, 1 PM and 3 PM. Learn about gravity, force and fun!
Saturday, May 26 | Gravity Lab
Take a crash course in gravity on Saturday, May 26 from 11 AM to 3 PM. Explore this invisible force using art, engineering and science experiments. Discover how gravity helps create art with splat painting, make a prototype of a gravity-powered rollercoaster, and practice finding the center of gravity through balancing experiments!
Sunday, May 27 | Stomp Rockets
Take off with rocket building on Sunday, May 27 from 1 PM to 3 PM! This fun activity is great chance to launch young scientists into engineering. They'll learn to solve a problem using the engineering process: ask, imagine, plan, create and improve. It's a blast!
Monday, May 28 | Moon and Motion
Explore astronomy fun on Monday, May 28 at 10:30 AM, 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM. Launch into sensory fun with moon sand at 10:30 AM, create and test a balloon rocket at 1:00 PM and explore objects in motion to learn how astronomers detect unseen planets at 3:00 PM.
Tuesday, May 29 | Craters and Robots
Put KCDC in your orbit for moon-themed fun on Wednesday, May 29 at 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM. Explore moon craters using flour at 1:00 PM. See what it's like to explore Mars with Dash robots at 3:00 PM. Kids use an app and coding skills to program Dash and navigate it around an obstacle course. It's serious fun!
Wednesday, May 30 | Clouds and Moon Rocks
Have an astronomically fun time on Wednesday, May 30 at 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM. Investigate clouds at 1:00 PM and make your own moon rocks at 3:00 PM.
Thursday, May 31 | Orbiting Objects and Magnetic Fields
Join us out-of-this world fun on Thursday, May 31 at 10:30 AM, 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM. Explore orbiting objects to learn how astronomers study planets at 10:30 AM, play with space slime at 1:00 PM and explore magnetic fields at 3:00 PM.
Friday, June 1 | Happy Birthday KCDC!
Celebrate KCDC's 7th birthday with a collection of amazing space activities on Friday, June 1! Make moon sand at 11:00 AM, make marshmallow shooters at 11:30, study orbiting objects like an astronomer at noon, join us for a birthday surprise at 1:00 PM, build stomp rockets at 2:00 PM and navigate robots through a moon challenge course at 3:00 PM.
