Superpower Science (TK-5 Educator Workshop), Fleet Science Center, Saturday, 18. May 2019

Superpower Science
 
Includes an educator workshop and the film, Superpower Dogs.
 
Pistol shrimp pack a powerful punch, and dung beetles can pull more than 1,000 times their weight. Many lizards can regrow their tails, and fleas can jump 200 times their body length. When compared to humans, the natural world appears to be filled with superpowers, but these superpowers are simply extreme examples of our own abilities.
In this workshop, educators will develop and use models and follow the engineering design process to explore how our five senses give us our own unique set of superpowers. In this workshop, educators will:
 

Experiment with superhuman vision and depth perception
Develop a model of the human tongue and taste sensitivity
Make observations and draw models without the sense of sight
Engineer superpower ears


At the conclusion of this workshop, all educators will receive complimentary admission to Superpower Dogs. Join an immersive IMAX® adventure to experience the life-saving superpowers and extraordinary bravery of some of the world's most amazing dogs. No stranger to superheroes himself, Chris Evans narrates this inspiring true story about remarkable (or is that "reBARKable?") dogs who save lives and discover the powerful bond they share with their human partners. 

This workshop is targeted towards teachers, after-school providers and informal educators who faciliate elementary-level science lessons.

Entrance LocationEnter through the Business Entrance, located on the south side of the Fleet Science Center, adjacent to the parking lot. The doors will open by 9:15 a.m. Late arrivals will need to ring the doorbell.
