What’s up at the Experiment Bar? 

December’s New Experiment is Project Clean!

Have you ever thought of the different ways to
clean? Does your mind immediately jump to using
soap when washing your hands? Cleaning is the
process of removing unwanted substances, such as
dirt, infectious agents, and other impurities, from
an object or environment. In this experiment, you will explore three methods of cleaning: mechanical, thermal, and chemical. Get ready to jump in and get your hands dirty!

 

 

Tinker Shop! 

Come in and find a STEM Educator if you need ideas on where to begin! There are so many areas of design and tinkering in the cool space! Be sure to create and design your own hovercraft! Check out the SLIME piano before you leave!
