Did you know that 76% of periodic table elements are metals? Conduct interesting investigations and fascinating experiments with these glistening and gleaming elements during Homeschool Afternoon. This activity-packed afternoon allows your students to try different challenges and activities with area chemistry students while you meet other homeschool  educators in the community.
Here are just a few of the experiments we have planned for you:
  • Explore how different metals are turned into beautifully unique spurs, using creativity and science to make beautiful works of art that have been used for centuries in Cattle Raisers Museum
  • Examine metal from outer space with the TCU Monnig Meteorite Gallery
  • Build a battery to learn the chemistry behind portable sources of power
  • Investigate different redox reactions on the surface of metals
  • Watch dull pennies change right before your eyes and examine coins from around the world
  • Iron, Iron, everywhere-even in our breakfast cereal? We'll search for this element in the foods we eat
  • Not only are metals marvelous, some are magnetic! Experiment with this property of many metals
  • Play with memory metal and find out some its fascinating properties.

Maker Studio is a pop-up space located in Innovation Studios designed to give guests ages 8 & up an opportunity to engage with our team and have hands-on making experiences. Each month features a new project led by our staff and involving a small group of homeschool students and their educators.  It is a great way to explore STEM based experiences in a small setting. The program is included in exhibit admission, but space is limited and pre-registration is required.
Reserve a one-hour spot online by visiting here and filling out the online reservation form.
