Minds in motion
STEM LAB (100 in 1)Learn about basic circuit connections as you construct four initial units, Maze Challenge, Flying Disc, Turbo Air, and Alarm System!  With Maze challenge, you can build a carnival classic hand eye coordination game where a metal loop is maneuvered around a metal wire.  Flying Disc allows you to launch a disc spinning into the air!  With Turbo Air, you can use air flow to create a bubble machine, vacuum cleaner, or a floating foam ball! Alarm system allows you to build a functioning spinning LED light with a beeping audio display!  As future electrical engineers, the 100 in 1 STEM lab will teach you how to comprehend a schematic diagram, build the circuit, and interpret the flow of electricity!  Design your own diagrams and watch your confidence soar as you transform wires, springs, and plastic parts into fully functioning circuits!  100 in 1 STEM Lab will continue to entertain and challenge you for years!

CSI Come and join our Minds In Motion Crime Team in this fun and interesting workshop!  We will provide you with all the tools you need to become your very own crime scene investigator!  Learn all about forensics, searching for evidence, and gathering clues.  You will conduct many science experiments in our crime labs to solve the mysteries at hand!  As young detectives in training, you will learn all about fingerprinting and how to classify them.  Bring home your very own fingerprint classification sheet!  You will also perform chemical analyses and observations working with powders, liquids, and much much more!  Be amazed at how much science plays a part in solving a crime.  Come ready with your thinking caps and be prepared to use all the skills necessary to solve the crime of the century and help save the Minds In Motion Laboratory!  We need you!

Bridges and Buildings  Have you ever been across a bridge and wondered how it works? Get ready to get your mind in motion as you work with and take home your very own Structures Set! Learn all about buildings and bridges and how they literally support our lives! Experiment with different types of bridges and find out how their architectural design provides massive weight support. Discover all the types of forces applied and how engineers manage to reduce their effects. With your kit, you can build up to nine working models such as a house, pyramid, and various types of bridges: beam, arch, truss, cable-stayed and suspension bridge. You will study theory and learn the history of some amazing structures and historical landmarks. Come bring out the architect side of you as you enter the fascinating world of bridges and buildings and explore the magic of STEM!
