Stem Sampler Kit 1- Chemistry, Aerospace and Electricity- Ages 8+ with Adult, or 12+
Science Explorers

Have fun with three STEM topics...chemistry, aerospace and electricity. First, your budding scientist with explore the three most common States of Matter in our environment: a solid, liquid and a gas. As your child conducts the three fun and exciting experiments from the Activity Guide, they will be learning that:  
·a solid has a stable shape,  
·a liquid will take on the shape of the container holding it,
·and that a gas has no shape. 
Next, discover the four forces that allow planes and rockets to fly: thrust, drag, weight and lift as you  experiment with these forces with fun, hands-on experiments and activities while using a paratrooper to investigate drag, a disk launcher to explore lift and more. Then, you will build and test an electromagnet and learn how the electromagnetic field was first discovered.

After registration, this kit will be shipped to Community Education. You will be notified when the kit arrives and then be able to pick up from the Community Education Office located at the Sauk Rapids-Rice Middle School (901 1st St. S)
