PROGRAMS 2012-2013 Texas Archaeology: Moments in Time (Grades 3-8) Texas’ rich cultural history takes center stage in this interactive program using artifacts, maps and an archaeological activity. Students will measure, sketch and analyze real artifacts covering 12,000 years of human history from a site near Texas A&M University. We will examine tools, clothing, ornaments and instruments to explore technological advances through time.

Electric Theater (Grades 2-12) Spark your students’ interest in electricity and magnetism with this highly interactive auditorium program. We’ll explore the properties of electricity using a Van de Graaff generator and Tesla coil, and we’ll cover topics including plasma, electromagnetism, Lenz’s Law, direct and alternating currents, Ohm’s Law, Joule’s Law and transformers. Prepare your students for a truly hair-raising experience as they discover the power of science.

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is an accumulation of nonbiodegradable trash brought together by ocean currents. Birds like the albatross often mistake floating plastics for their prey. By studying the pellets that albatrosses regurgitate, scientists monitor the impact of the garbage patch on the diet of these birds. In teams of two, students will dissect pellets to identify, sort and classify contents. This program emphasizes the impact of humans and material waste on delicate ocean ecosystems and food chains. (Real pellets will be available to observe and examine, but dissection pellets will be artificial replicas.)
