Table Top Fun

Did You Know?

According to an old English system of time units, a moment is one and a half minutes.

Our interactive Table Top science activities are the perfect way to invigorate any festival, fair, or other school or public event, whether you are hoping to reinforce a particular science topic or to simply create a fun, educationally-valid experience!
