Meet a Few Exhibitors
What are sine waves and why are they everywhere?
Join Keysight Technologies at 11:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., or 1:00 p.m. (pacific) to learn more about sine waves, the most common waves, found in electricity and rotating objects. Use a pendulum to explore repeating motions and discover where they exist in the world.
Why are there different kinds of bees?
At 11:00 a.m. (pacific), youth will take part in interactive activities to gain an understanding of how bees have adapted to a variety of ecosystems. Youth will discover how temperature and light affect bees’ biological needs to pollinate and forage for food. Youth will also have access to distance learning programs including humble honey bees, do the waggle, and others!
How do we animate still objects and images to create the illusion of movement?
At 12:00 p.m., join the Charles M. Schulz Museum for the art of animation. Animation is a method to make drawn, painted, or CGI imagines to appear moving. Join us to learn the science behind animation with several hands-on projects you can do at home.
