For the safety of our community and staff, LSC remains closed to the public until further notice. Click here to learn more.
LSC's expert educators offer assemblies for large audiences and series of after-school explorations tailored to your group or club. Is your school holding a science fair or fundraiser? Our staff can lead a hands-on science activity station that complements your theme. To deliver any of these programs, we will travel within a 140-mile radius of Jersey City.
Interested in planning an after school program? Please contact us and we will help you plan a unique program that's perfect for your students.
Alex would much rather play with toys than learn about boring physics. But soon Alex will learn that physics is all around: at home, the park, and even on a simple walk. The push-and-pull forces at work in favorite games will entertain and educate both Alex and your students, and help them understand that physics is fun!

Your body carries out many “gross” functions, like burping and sweating, but it does so for very important reasons. Take a journey through the human body to discover how your brain makes decisions, without your knowing it, to keep you healthy and strong by controlling the various organ systems of the body.

It’s our most popular show! Explore the positives and negatives of static electricity, the subzero temperatures of liquid nitrogen, the states of matter, and the immense pressure of air. Includes more than a dozen thrilling experiments and, as always, we use lots of volunteers. It’s a great way to showcase the concepts of energy and matter.

Arcing electricity. Balls of fiery gas. Join us for an interactive look at the two most common forms of home energy. Students generate electricity, explore insulators and conductors, and participate in our very own game show, all while learning how to avoid the hazards inherent in using natural gas and electricity. NJSLS (Science): Energy: 4-PS3-2
Sports all have one thing in common—science. We demonstrate Newton’s Laws and cause and effect using sports equipment. Students learn how a pitcher makes a baseball curve and volunteers join in a momentum race. We even demonstrate concepts related to helmet safety by lying on a bed of sharp nails. No tricks or illusions here, just pure science. Motion and Stability: Forces & Interactions: MS-PS2-2
Most of us have probably wondered how aircraft fly. While it might seem impossible or magical, it’s really just science. Take a closer look at the four forces of flight and aviation in an educational and entertaining way! NJSLS (Science): Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions MS-PS2-2
