At IQ Science, we use ordinary household items to bring extra-ordinary science experiences to schools in Southeastern Michigan. All of our
programs aim to put the pupil in quest of science. Programmes Available:
That Makes Sense: an intro to the senses. This program uses the analogy of e-mail to explain messages sent by our senses to our brain.
Storm Science: Have you ever been afraid during a storm? Was it the wind, the thunder, the lightening, or the rain that bothered you? This assembly breaks down the parts of a storm to explore where they come from and how they work.
What’s the Solution: How can we make an egg float? How can we make a rock disappear? How do we make a little foam boat zoom across the water without the slightest push? What’s the solution? Make a Solution!
A Better Solution: a more advanced solution assembly that includes demonstration of a supersaturated solution and a demo of Brownian motion.
Simple Simple Machines: A more basic approach to machines where we examine the “invisible forces” of gravity and friction and how machines use and overcome these forces.
Plants on the Move: Think plants are boring? This show sets out to prove how dynamic plants really are! Students will see how plants move through the environment – as they disperse their seeds, spread their roots, and make sugar which fuels the food chain.
Measure for Measure: When we study matter such as gasses, liquids, and solids, we experience its measurable properties most easily - its mass, height, volume. Students will sort some simple solids by size using rulers.
Light up my Life: students learn about straight-line travel of light, absorption, refraction, reflection, diffraction, and color as they try a variety of activities.
Sounds Abound: Students will play a game in which they will act out the behavior of sound travelling through a solid in order to examine the effects of density and elasticity on wave propagation and Many More!
