Join us for a fun week of science!! We will have 4 main activities to do as well as other displays to view and interact with! The activities will include:

Slime making! Using a few house hold ingredients, we will create a chemical reaction to make slime! You will be able to take the slime home with you!

Erupting a Volcano! We will assemble a basic 'volcano' where we will mix ingredients that will cause an eruption and a chemical reaction that will produce a gas and fill a balloon! 

Non-Newtonian Fluid!  Non-Newtonian fluids change their flow behavior under stress. If you
apply a force to such fluids (say you hit, shake or jump on them), the sudden application
of stress can cause them to get thicker and act like a solid. Remove the stress (let them sit
still or only move them slowly) and they will return to their earlier fluid state.  

Marshmallow Geometry! Using tooth picks and marshmallows we will explore different geometric shapes that can be made! Examples will be made to challenge your skills! 


An interactive magnet display will be set up as well as a fluid density tower!!

Lots to see and do!
