Science Saturday: Pumpkin Catapults
The concepts of momentum and energy transfer are introduced and applied to meet the challenge of building a catapult to launch a “pom-kin.” Visitors of all ages are invited to discover solutions to science and engineering challenges.
This is a drop-in activity, feel free to join the fun at any time from 1 to 4 p.m. Activities are included in admission and free to members. Use Hagley’s main entrance off Route 141 in Wilmington, Delaware.
For this Saturday’s activity, visitors will have fun with fluid dynamics and hydraulics - Pascal would be proud!
Have fun with chemistry experiments!
Build a magnet toy and tinker with the force!
Part science fair, part community fair, and part something entirely new. Maker Fest is an all-ages gathering to invigorate the Maker spirit in everyone!
Learn how plants grow and what they need to thrive.
