Join us as we explore how water is a very important component in all ecosystems. We will discover the water cycle, learn how important clean water is to humans, and how to help make sure everyone has access to it. Come help us experiment with different water filtration systems and find out which one works the best. 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 experimentation. Watch things bubble pop, move, fizz, change, spread, grow, and twist. Join us in answering the question, “What happens if…” Limited to 8 participants.
