Celebrate the amazing structure of the egg and find out if it's really possible to stand on a carton of eggs without cracking any, why eggs are, well, egg-shaped, and whether or not you can create a contraption that will safely deliver an egg from a 62-foot drop.
During this "EGGcellent EGGperience," guests can also delve into color and chromatography in a BASF Kids' Lab, test their balance skills and use LEGOs to design and build a catapult. All EGGstra activities are FREE with paid admission to the Science Center.
Visit the Science Center's website at GreatScience.com, or on Facebook, between now and March 17 and vote on a special "Friends' Choice" activity that will be added to the EGGSperiment activity schedule. Guests can choose from one of the following options:
What are colors, really? Learn the science behind colors and color mixing by making your very own color wheel!
Equinox Egg Balance
Have you ever heard that you can only balance an egg on its end during the fall and spring equinox thanks to the perfect tilt of the Earth? Find out the truth and learn about the equinox and how seasons affect our world in mysterious ways.
EGGSplore technology and robotics as you navigate this small spherical robot through a tricky obstacle course.
DIY Bath Bomb
Learn the chemistry behind this common bath product and make your own egg-shaped bath bomb to take home and observe in action.
Chemistry and motion come alive as we EGGSperiment with chemical reactions in this EGGSplosively fun activity.
(Editor's note: The Science Center will be closed on Sunday, April 16. Winter hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. The Science Center is closed on Mondays through April.)
