Rob Stephenson and inquisitive kids take a hands-on approach to scientific exploration.

#301 Wheels and Axles
Difficult doorknobs, funnel races, water wheels and pinwheel power! Explore how a round wheel works together with an axle so that they rotate together. STEM Challenge: Making a rubber band powered wheel and axle. Curious About Careers: scientist Tonya Matthews gives an interactive tour at Michigan Science Center in Detroit.

#302 Resonance
Resonant rods, rings and pipes and powerful pendulums! Explore how every object has the potential to vibrate, and those vibrations occur in different wave patterns. Resonance is adding an additional force with a matching frequency the wave. STEM Challenge: Making a membranophone. Curious About Careers: nuclear physicist Artemis Spyrou explains how an atom-smashing cyclotron works.

#303 Momentum
Racing cans, pencil spinners, bowling ball bangers! Explore how whenever something is moving, it has momentum, and the faster it’s moving, the more momentum it has. STEM Challenge: Designing a better bobsled. Curious About Careers: pediatrician Mona Hanna-Attisha describes what it takes to care for children’s health.

#304 Football Science
Football bounce and flight, sticky fingers and more! Explore how a football’s shape makes it more difficult to predict how it will bounce, while that shape helps its gyroscopic motion when thrown or kicked. STEM Challenge: Designing a water balloon helmet. Curious About Careers: biomechanical engineer Tamara Reid Bush explains the movement of the human body.

#305 Buoyancy
Sinking stones, aluminum boats, Cartesian diver, scuba action figures, hot air balloons and more! Explore buoyancy, which is an object’s ability to float. STEM Challenge: Making a hovering balloon. Curious About Careers: microbiologist Joan Rose discusses the workings of a water research lab.

#306 Skeletal System
Broken bones, tendon tricks, acidic exoskeletons and more! Explore the human skeletal system including bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and joints; and how it stores calcium and phosphorous and produces blood cells. STEM Challenge: Making a no-hands crutch. Curious About Careers: orthopedic surgeon and baseball team physician Julie Dodds on her career in sports medicine.

#307 Rockets
Multi-staging balloons, water bottles, air rockets and more! Explore how rockets can lift off the ground through an imbalance of forces. STEM Challenge: Designing a water bottle rocket. Curious About Careers: astrophysicist Shannon Schmoll at Abrams Planetarium and technology manager Mary Palkovich.

#308 Candy Chemistry
Buoyant candy, marshmallow melee and more! Candy and science? It’s funny to think that candy is related to science, but it’s true! STEM Challenge: Making sugar stained glass. Curious About Careers: audiologist Brooke Tudor explains how to properly test and care for our hearing.

#309 Inertia
Spinning eggs and more! Explore how an object that is still or at rest will stay at rest, while an object in motion will keep moving unless another force acts on it. STEM Challenge: Making ‘eggciting’ safety restraints. Curious About Careers: technology coordinator Michelle Massey and pediatrician Mona Hanna-Attisha.

#310 Electric Batteries
Human batteries, electric lemon, potato possibilities and more! The Curious Crew learns that batteries are used to change chemical energy into electrical energy. STEM Challenge: Designing a better battery. Curious About Careers: Scientist Tonya Matthews and nuclear physicist Artemis Spyrou.
