Friday Evening Performance (6:00pm - 8:00pm): Mad Science presents Marvels of Motion with Lightning Lucy!


A show that's sure to make Isaac Newton proud, this forcibly fantastic performance is about Newton's 3 laws of physics and other properties of the laws of motion and gravity!  Rotational forces, a rocket pack blast off, the piezo electric rocket, and Newton's rocket car are just a few of the action packed experiments to be investigated.  Just when you thought jet packs were something of the future, you'll see the Mad Scientist propel herself across the floor using the exclusive Mad Science rocket car!  This engaging physics performance is sure to please everyone and inspire more imaginative learning in all audience members!  





More than 60 exhibitors can be expected to attend the HOME Convention. Please come out to support them!

 * Hands-on activities for children will be happening in the exhibit areas throughout the convention!
