- Meet the "Awesome Elements": Find out why you are always "in your element" no matter what you are doing. Discover what you and helium balloons, computer memory chips, and galvanized nails have in common.
- Experience science in action: "Break" a water molecule, produce fluorescent light (without turning a switch!), detect magnetic ink in money, compare antiperspirants, and separate the iron from your breakfast cereal -- all using household items.
- Observe and explore: Why does soap clean, how do colors change in flames, why does broccoli smell, and how can soda shine up a penny?
