What We Did

An average of 32 youngsters a week enjoyed four weeks of hands-on science activities in Ann Arbor-area parks.

We played with paper chromatography, did egg drop experiments, tried blowing up plastic bags with vinegar/baking soda mixtures, made our own Lava Lamps, and experimented with liquid nitrogen! If you wish to try some of these activities, here is how:

  Black Magic
  Salt Volcano
  Liquid Nitrogen Fun!
