Due to the number of students that enroll in our program, we cannot take requests to participate in any particular workshops. Thank you for understanding!

Workshops
Exploring Your Brain Become brain scientists and discover how our brains allow us to feel, think, and remember. You’ll touch & explore real brains and conduct experiments to learn how our nervous system works.
Fluids, Bubbles, and Slime This workshop is about the science of fluids. It is also about getting your hands wet and slimy, so roll up your sleeves! Have you ever heard that oil and water don’t mix, that they don’t like each other? In this workshop, you will see how you can make them friendly and make them mix. You will learn how to make a chunk of iron float in water and you will make a soap powered boat. Using our secret recipe, you will prepare a bowl of liquid slime that becomes rock hard when you punch it!
Math and Games Like to play games? This workshop will introduce you to a few new games and you'll explore how to find the best strategies to win! Can you use math to find a strategy that works every time?
The Missing Tooth We will explore a sample of 10 million year old shark teeth from Gainesville, Florida. We will take a virtual field trip to the site of collection before playing with and sorting through a real life sample! Come find some fossils with us...
Polymer Hydrogels Why are diapers super absorbent? In between the layers of plastic and cotton fibers is a hydrogel, or “water-gel.” Come perform experiments with us to explore the properties of hydrogels. How much water can they hold? Which brand of diapers is really the best?
The Secret World of Fungi Fungi are everywhere! Join us in looking at fungi in crazy places and grow your own pet fungi. Help us make new discoveries about the fungi on Tulane’s campus.
