So much science, so little time. . .

The solution: The Wheel of Science!
At least a dozen fantastic STEAM demonstrations are ready to go. Wherever the wheel stops, that’s what’s next! Will we turn a water bottle into a rocket or catapult bananas across the stage? Electrocute a pickle or create artificial gravity? Who knows? So, step right up, and let’s spin that wheel!
