Make connections, tour campus, get your hands dirty and discover the possibilities Central College can offer you.

Our professors are the catalyst to your success, and you’ll see why as you spend one-on-one time with them. There is no cost to attend.

Sessions

  • Slime, Time and Alchemy
    Put on your own demo show featuring fun chemistry reactions such as slime, a chemical clock, liquid nitrogen, elephant toothpaste and “gold” pennies.
  • Dolphins and Dimensions
    Use statistics to investigate whether dolphins can communicate and explore what it means to be “between” dimensions.
  • Hidden Structures and Heat
    Using a thermal imaging camera and engineering design, explore the concept of heat transfer: design, build and discover hidden structures and glaring inefficiencies in models of an ordinary home.
  • Human Movement: The Why and What
    Discover aspects of the human body through understanding what structures are called, how they work together and why that’s so important to human movement.
  • Picobot: Robots, Logic and Computer Science
    Learn how to program a “picobot” to move around in its environment and discover fundamental concepts of computer science.
