Cherry Blossom STEM Day!

The Children’s Science Center Lab will be hosting “Cherry Blossom STEM Day at the Lab” on Saturday, April 6 as a participant of the upcoming National Cherry Blossom Festival.

This special event will be included in general admission and available from 10am – 6pm.

Visitors will be able to enjoy and celebrate the Cherry Blossom Festival with a twist of STEM. Guests will be able to experiment with Flower Pigmentation. Visitors will press or rub flower petals onto a coffee filter, and with water added, witness the process of different pigmentation i.e., which colors will appear for the different types of flowers. Surprise and wonder may come as to how many colors will reveal themselves out of one colored petal!
