KOC 07: Logic and Reasoning
Learn logic and reasoning skills in this class. Students will learn about fingerprints and how everyone has a unique style: whorl, loop, and arch. Students will also look at shoe/boot prints and see how these change by size and pattern. Students will increase their thinking skills while they investigate different scenarios to determine what really happened.
KOC 08: CSI Basics
Students will explore different techniques that can be used by detectives to help solve a crime. Students will learn fingerprint, shoe print, handwriting, and white powder analysis (learning to identify common white powders found in your kitchen by texture, size, shading, and solubility.) Once the students have practiced these skills they will use their detective skills to solve a mystery.
KOC 09: KOC 03: CSI with Chromatography
Students in these grades will also explore fingerprint, shoe print, handwriting, and white powder analysis. In addition, students will study chromatography and be able to identify which writing instrument was a part of the “crime scene”! Students will have a similar but more complex mystery to solve.

KOC 10 Body of Eggs
Explore how eggs are similar to the human body? How is cleaning an egg like cleaning your teeth? Why is the shell porous like your skin? How can you make an egg bounce? Participate in fun science experiments to understand the comparisons and contrasts of an egg to your body.
KOC 11: Egg Experiments
What happens when an egg is boiled? How can you get a hardboiled egg into a too small bottle? How can you make an egg float? Using hands-on experiments explore all of these questions. Discover Buoyancy in an egg and other objects as you build a boat that can float while holding an egg.
KOC 12: Egg Design
How can you squeeze an egg with all of your strength and have it not break? How many books can a few eggs hold? How can you drop an egg from 4, 6, or 10 feet without it breaking? Study the inside and outside of an egg to determine it’s structurally shape and density. Then experiment with different objects to construct your safest dropping structures.
