Science on the Spot: Demonstration Station

The Science On the Spot demonstration station offers fun and engaging hands on science activities for visitors to walk up and experience.   Ideally suited to a festival setting where many activities are taking place.  Small groups of guests (4–5 at a time) can try mind-bending puzzles, explore the world through an infrared camera, spin like a figure skater, experience hair-raising static electricity with the Van de Graaff generator, or try building epic towers out of thousands of wooden KEVA Planks.
