  • Rocket Launch - 2nd - 12th grade. Participants will get a chance to make their very own rocket! With the aid of an air-powered launcher, participants will get to test out their rockets and observe how launch angle affects flight distance. Stop by to see why this is one of SUPER-M's most popular activities!
  • Building A Hawaiian Star Compass - 7th to 12th grade students. The participants of this activity will use rope, a protractor, and other materials to create a Hawaiian star compass which will have a radius of over 10 feet. They will learn about what a star compass was used for, how to use a protractor, and how to use the Pythagorean Theorem to create 90 degree angles
  • Space Origami and Math Puzzles - All ages. Fold your own space shuttle and 5-pointed star. Exercise your brain with fun arithmetic and algebraic puzzles. Also, let the little ones color to their hearts' content with space-themed coloring pages!
  • From the Earth to the Sky: The Science of Flight - 2nd to 12th grade. Before flying into space, humans struggled to get off the ground. In this activity, we will learn about the science of flight with paper airplanes and a vacuum chamber.
  • One Giant Leap: How high could you jump on other planets? - 3rd-12th grade. Students will weigh themselves and calculate how much they would weigh on the surface of other planets (and the moon) using given conversion factors. Then students will record their highest earth-jump and figure out how high they could jump if they were on the other planets (resp. Moon). Students can also enjoy comparing weights of given objects on display.
  • Telecopes - All ages. Observe the night sky with telescopes! Enjoy some of the stars, clusters and nebulae of the Milky Way with astronomers from the UH Institute for Astronomy
  • Light & Spectra - A hands-on activity to discover how astronomers learn what stars, planets, and galaxies are made of.
  • Robotics Demonstrations
