Mad Science is the world’s leading fun science provider, with a 20-year track record of delivering exciting, hands-on, and educational science experiences!. http://kansascity.madscience.org/ MAD SCIENCE CRAZY CHEMISTRY AGES 6 TO 12 • ONE 7 HOUR CLASS OCC Member: 72 OCC Non-MEMBERS $80 In this workshop we investigate chemical reactions happening all around us every day, in the kitchen, the laundry, the garden even the walls! Young scientists will build crystals, make sidewalk chalk, bath fizzers and a chromatograph T-shirt, investigate water absorbing chemicals, and use chemical reactions to make their own ice cream. DEADLINE: ONE WEEK PRIOR • MIN: 8 MAX: 25 LOCATION: OLATHE COMMUNITY CENTER, 1205 E. KANSAS CITY ROAD 25251 ........ 9:00 am...... 7/7 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Mon SCIENCE OF SPORT AGES 6 TO 12 • ONE 7 HOUR CLASS OCC Member: 72 OCC Non-MEMBERS $80 Check out how science has helped us understand sports and performance. Investigate everything from why your toes are important, the role of chemistry in your blood, to the capacity of your lungs. And what’s this? Physics is part of baseball, football and even acrobatics! It’s all about energy transfer, gravity and forces we explore in this full day of fun science. DEADLINE: ONE WEEK PRIOR • MIN: 8 MAX: 25 LOCATION: OLATHE COMMUNITY CENTER 1205 E. KANSAS CITY ROAD 25254 ...........9:00 am .......... 7/10 ......... Thu LIGHTS & SIGHTS AGES 6 TO 12 • ONE 7 HOUR CLASS OCC Member: 72 OCC Non-MEMBERS $80 Students discover the secrets of light! Break light into its parts, and put them back together, learn about waves and colors, explore reflection, refraction and diffraction, and make your own multi-colored Sun Catchers using only three primary colors, make messages appear and disappear using colors and patterns that deceive the eye.

Fri Camps MAD SCIENCE MACHINES AGES 6 TO 12 • ONE 7 HOUR CLASS OCC Member: 72 OCC Non-MEMBERS $80 ROCKIN ROBOTS AGES 7 TO 12 • FIVE 3 HOUR CLASSES OCC Member: 189 OCC Non-MEMBERS $210 Find out how wedges, screws and levers help us in our daily lives. Run through an obstacle course and use teamwork to show how useful simple machines can be. Students will be introduced to the concepts of simple machines; the wheel and axle, pulleys, levers, wedges, inclined planes, screws, and pulleys. They will discover the three classes of levers, the use of the fulcrum and investigate the relationship between screws, inclined planes and the forces of balance, gravity and friction. Students will observe the awesome power of pneumatics and hydraulics, participate in a pincher relay, experiment with pulley systems, investigate the force of friction, and construct their own mega-pinchers, micro-pinchers and a miniature catapult to take home.
