Featured Math & Science Resource:
California Science Center Water Works

California Science Center Water Works

In this amazing pool of water, students can conduct their own water orchestra with water pumps that create fountain effects. At the same time, students learn how water moves. Students also can discover how objects move through water as well as basic design and experimentation with the Big Lab's large fans and armada of miniature sailboats.

Fun Fact: There are 8,997 gallons of water in the Water Works pool.

Fun Fact: To create the fountain water effects, there are 4 small pumps, 2 large pumps, 2 jumping jets, and 2 water lamps to illuminate the water in the dark.

Featured Presentation: Sailing AS History

Sailing As History

Thomas G. Sitzmann has created an insightful presentation linking the history of sailing with the development of pretty much all scientific breakthroughs of the last four centuries. It's an inspirational powerpoint video that gets you thinking differently about history, science and technology, and it all revolves around our ability to sail 'round the world.
