Science Sunday: Marvelous Metals

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

  • Oct. 13, 2019, 11:30am-12:15pm and 1:30-2:15pm
  • Westchester Children's Museum
  • 100 Playland Parkway, Rye
  • Young elementary, Tween, Teen

The eyes are naturally drawn to things that sparkle or shine... did you know that those objects are likely made from metals? Join WCM for a sneak peak of National Chemistry Week to answer the question: What EXACTLY is a metal? Make wacky magnetic slime, real batteries, and watch Science Educator Harmon make a spoon magically disappear with his mind... or is it just science?! Sign ups begin when the Museum opens, and are limited to the first 10 children on a first come, first serve basis.
