Playing With Science

Young scientists investigate the scientific concepts and principles that help make common toys such as hula hoops, yo-yos, slinkies, and silly putty work. As a class, they read "Backyard Rocket Science, Served Wet" to get a look behind the scenes of inventions. They then develop exhibits to display in a "Science of Toys" museum.
