Alley Pond Environmental Center


Young elementary, Tween


Event description:

Children will explore their inner scientist with this fun-filled, hands-on experimenting class. They will be challenged to form a hypothesis based on the materials of the day, then draw conclusions based on their experimentations. Watch things bubble, pop, move, and fizz, change, spread, grow and twist. Join us in answering the question “What happens if....” Ever wonder how you can feel the sound of a thunderstorm or the hum of a song? Come test the properties of sound waves as we dig into the science of vibrations. Each child will take home their own recycled drum. Limited to 8 participants.
