The activities and experiments were guided by top science and math teachers spending the
year in the Einstein Fellows Program administered by the Department of Energy. Experiments
explored floatation and density, light, optics and the electromagnetic spectrum, Radio Astronomy
Telescopes, physics, papermaking, graphing, structural design, energy, plasma, gases,
soil layers and DNA.
