Wings of Eagles Discovery Center is pleased to announce Project-based Learning Programs that will be held every 2 weeks on Saturdays at our facility from 10am-12pm. The classroom will accommodate 10 students. Should this program grow beyond this number, then we will gladly add in more time slots and more days. The Project-based programs use Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) principles to help children gain hands-on experience.
Program Fees are usually $20-30 per student per program for classroom instruction. Take home kits range from $12-$20 per student.
Students participate in a single topic with hands-on experiments. Most classes will also send students on with various materials for a continued learning experience.
Classes are from 10am-12pm on the following dates:
We can test for the presence of these important compounds in food by using chemical reagents that react in predictable ways in the presence of these nutrients Simple Sugar, Proteins, Starches, etc
Understanding the science chemistry behind flowers and all of their beauty!
We see pretty pebbles at the beach, and we can find rocks in all shapes and sizes in backyards and parks. But what are rocks made of? Where do they come from? Why are they different colors, and why are some rocks hard and smooth, while others are rough and crumbly? Using rocks and other everyday easy-to-find items, students will get the chance to be real-life geologists and carry out step-by-step experiments to answer these and other intriguing questions.
Plate tectonics building is a scientific theory describing the large-scale motion of the plates making up the Earth’s lithosphere since tectonic processes began on Earth between 3.3 and 3.5 billion years ago. The model builds on the concept of continental drift, an idea developed during the first decades of the 20th century. The geoscientific community accepted plate-tectonic theory after seafloor spreading was validated in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
· Earthquakes begin at a point (known as the “epicenter,” when viewed on a map).
· A long section of a fault can rupture during an earthquake, progressively expanding away from the epicenter. The rupture may grow for a few seconds to up to a minute depending on the size of the event.
· The earth shakes in all different directions and modes during an earthquake.
There are two kinds of volcanoes: one kind with violent eruptions producing steep slopes and the other kind with voluminous lava flows producing gentle slopes. The character of volcanic eruptions are largely controlled by the viscosity of the magma.
