EXTREME SCIENCE It's science to the extreme! Your students can participate in an exciting learning experience with a variety of scientific demonstrations and experiments taking place daily at our Midway Stage.
The McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center presents:
THE GRAVITY OF IT ALL Gravity isn't just a theory... it's the law! This is a fascinating presentation that answers many questions such as : What do you have to do to escape the pull of gravity? How does gravity influence weightlessness in space? What does gravity have to do with Black Holes and time travel?
“IS THE PRESSURE GETTING to YOU?” Using a variety of interactive techniques to get students involved, the presentation explores different ways gas pressure affects the Earth and why we can't live without it. Also presented by the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center.
ROBOTICS Every Thursday, the Windham, New Hampshire, High School FIRST® team - "The Windham Windup" - will bring robots of all shapes, sizes and purposes to the Canobie Institute. The team will demonstrate the many capabilities and applications of these increasingly intelligent machines and describe how robots are becoming more and more ubiquitous in our communities, our workplaces, and even in our homes.
Spectators will be allowed to operate several of the robots via remote control, and team members will be on hand to describe the robot design and build process. Included will be explanations and examples of the precision and care necessary in the robots' construction and programming, as well as in their continuing care and maintenance.
