Mad Science, Day 2

July 19, 2017

Scientist Thelma here once again to share my observations about day 2! Today was filled with some messy experiments that lead to lots of fun. Check out the pictures below to see how experiments help us learn the best!

 

 

Games- 

Today we did played a fun science themed activity. Each kid pretended to be an atom. They held onto a hula-hoop and ran down around a cone and came back. Then, another "atom" held on. This continued until we could see how big the element become! The record was 12 atoms! After, they did a race where two teams competed to see who could get their atoms on the quickest. 

 

Yak Academy-

Today was built a fun tornado in a bottle craft. We worked on sharing materials, follow instructions, and being safe with the materials. 

 

Chit Chat-

Today we made a fun bubble-gum brain themed activity. The goal was to teach flexibility by making putty, demonstrate how when we aren't flexible how fast we can escalate to the red zone (break a pencil) model how when we are flexible like putty, we can always twist every which way and always end up back to our original state.

 

Cooking - Orange and Silver

Color changing lemon aid. Starting out yellow and adding freeze-dried blueberries and strawberries to see what color it would be.  
 

 

Discovery - Green

Today we used science to make special invisible ink. Then, we Using invisible ink to write a message - sharing materials and saying something nice about others.
