Tuesday, December 26: Dino Detectives
Follow the fossilized footsteps of dinosaurs to a time when giants ruled the earth and monsters patrolled the seas. Watch some living fossils in action; make casts, charts and even fossil jewelry. Find out how paleontologists, real fossil hunters, dig, examine and collect ancient traces of life long gone.

Wednesday, December 27: Makers and Breakers
Build and test structures that stand tall, carry loads and span space! Use wood, stone, cardboard and your ingenuity to engineer the impossible and practical as you learn about the secret of the Roman arch, earthquake-proof skyscrapers, impossibly long bridges and test them to the breaking point and beyond.

Thursday, December 28: I Want My Mummy!
Uncover the mysteries of Ancient Egypt; go on a clue hunt to find a tomb overflowing with treasures. Come on a trip down the Nile delta and back in time for a day filled with art, crafts, dress-up. Walk like an Egyptian for a day. Be a scribe, perfume merchant, pyramid builder or even the pharaoh and even make your own mummy to take home!

Friday, December 29: Icky, Sticky Science
Safety goggles are a must for in this crazy science lab! Make and explore different kinds of gack, flubber and goo in oozy, slimy experiments. Work like a scientist with droppers, measuring spoons, flasks, and tubes but watch out for fizzy, bubbly, sticky, wet explosions!
