X15836: The Science of Nerf Guns in Splash 2023 (Nov. 18 - 19, 2023)
Have you ever wondered about the science that goes into building Nerf guns, or the unique ways that process can be innovated upon? Through a set of demonstrations and introductory breakdowns, this course will explore such ideas. We will look at how an understanding of aerodynamics and design principles can be used to create much more powerful Nerf guns from scratch. We will also examine the basics of circuitry and battery composition in order to learn about building electronic Nerf guns. Additionally, we will look at alternative ways to launch Nerf darts. By taking a look at materials science we will consider the relative merits of using 3d printers, cnc machines, or even old instruments as the basis of new Nerf designs.

W15895: Mutant Plushie Lab in Splash 2023 (Nov. 18 - 19, 2023)
Create an army of mis-matched minions to unleash your vengeance on the world! Or, you know, just see what a teddy with an alligator head would look like. If you would rather play with Sid's toys than Andy's, this is the Activity for you. No prior sewing/gene splicing experience required.
