Swashbuckling Science:  Are you smarter than a pirate? "See" the difference an eye patch makes; design a boat to float your swag; make a compass to point the way, navigate by the stars, and craft a sailboat to catch the wind.

Whoosh:  Make your own kite to master the wind, harness air with a hovercraft, and pit your strength against air pressure.
Feats like magic come easy to even novice airbenders! Masters will learn to manipulate this element to topple distant objects and send a foggy vortex flying.

Does it Float?:  Float a fish, sink a sub, and make your own toy. Investigate buoyancy and help us dunk computer monitors, bowling balls, and other oddball objects in our giant tank as we test for 'float' or 'sink' with host Wink Fløtersynk. Dress to get wet.

Splish Splash Splat:  Bring some fruit to fuel our giant catapult. Little squirts and big drips can splash together some dripping art. Drench your favorite family member, experiment with water balloon ballistics, and play with wet and messy stuff. Dress to get wet.
