Pre-K to K
Pre-K to K:
Ready, Set, Code
Did you know that you can learn coding skills without using a computer? Explore how programmers learn to code by “programming” your teacher to draw a smiley face or by guiding your friend through an obstacle course.
Sailors and Storytellers
Build a boat to travel across the sea as you hear stories of near and far. Engineer towers and bridges as you help storybook characters like Rapunzel and the 3 Billy Goats Gruff.
Take a peek into the wacky world of Dr. Seuss. Find out what inventions were originally designed for and develop a wacky creation of your very own.
In this robotic challenge you will use Cubelets© and Littlebits© robotics to build a robot that can follow a line and even move in response to light.
Can you make music with items lying around your house? Create your own instruments using a variety of junkyard materials and discover the interesting sounds you are able to make.
Enter the world of monsters to find out what makes monsters tick as you create a monster of your own.
Code, Game, Create
Using the programming language of Scratch, you will create your own moving story and even the beginnings of what could become an app or a video game.
Inventors and engineers alike have created inventions from rockets to can openers. If there is a problem, an inventor can design a solution. Learn about different inventions throughout the week and even develop your own invention to solve a problem in your world.
Strange in the Making
All around the world, strange things are happening. Explore the science of the strange as you design a sarcophagus and learn about the techniques used to wrap a mummy.
Principles of Coding
Learn all about the art of reverse engineering as you take apart everyday items from board games, to electronics, and even cereal.
Mysteries of the Museum
Did you know that the Kentucky Science Center has its very own mummy? Investigate the secrets of our mummy using evidence from researchers on how to determine the name, gender, and age of the mummy.
