The Interactive Science & Storytelling Program
With the help of audience volunteers, we conduct science experiments to bring an exciting story to life!
"Mystery of the Golden Piano" - Now through May 2019
The Story... Grab your spurs and journey with us to the Wild West, where a legendary bank-robbing outlaw is back in town, about to strike again! After the Sheriff mysteriously vanishes, two young kids saddle up to foil the great heist and put a rotten cowboy back behind bars!
The Science... We use awesome science experiments to bring key parts of the story to life. Volunteers from the audience will:
- Make the colors of the wild western sunset appear by using special pH indicators.
- Create the sound of "fireworks" by setting off a chain of chemical reactions with common household items.
- Witness the effects of inertia and gravity on a runaway train.
- And much, much more!
After each experiment, the audience makes a hypothesis. Then we change a variable and repeat the experiment to see the new result!
