Registered Exhibitors & Activities for Saturday, October 26, 2019
See the many fun, fabulous, and zany exhibits (or activities) that will be at the North Bay Science Discovery Day. Each exhibitor offers a wonderful hands-on activity for kids -- to get excited about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Come back again to this site and watch the list grow! For details on being an exhibitor as well as participant lists from previous years, go to exhibitor information.
How are electric circuits like pacemakers?
Build a working circuit from a kit of batteries, light bulbs, wires, motors, and switches, and connect this concept to a pacemaker's function.
What opens clogged arteries?
Inflate balloons in simulated arteries to learn how balloons and stents open up blocked passages.
Can you save the Procedure Pal?
Use medical devices in a large Operation-type game to learn how these products save lives.
What is inside, outside, above, and below native oaks?
Examine oak and woodlands specimens that illustrate these rich habitats, and view microscopic samples of related mosses, lichens, and soils.
What do physics and pumpkins have to do with catapults?
Design, construct, and test catapults to launch cotton balls into a pumpkin, and estimate the number of balls to fill the pumpkin.
Could you be a Citizen Scientist?
