February Holiday Workshop

Monday, January 25th, 2010

Join us for a fun-filled week at SMLI!  During winter recess from February 15-February 19, the science museum will be having its February Holiday Workshops.  Be ready to start your engines on Monday!  You will be building and racing your very own car.  On Tuesday you will learn tricks with magnets, how sound works, see rainbows, and understand electricity.  It will be a “shocking” experience!  Don’t miss out on Crafty Science class Wednesday.  The projects will include tye-dye, rock jewelry, paper-making, Spin Art, and creating a picture frame that you can take home.   Thursday you will be sampling what astronauts eat, making a frozen treat, doing some candy chemistry, eating “dirt”, and building yummy structures.  Who can resist learning about science that you can eat ?  Spring is right around the corner, which means that we will be maple sugaring here at the museum.  On Friday, you will learn how maple syrup is made, listen to stories around the camp fire, and do some taste testing. 

Sign up for the workshops today!  Hope to see you soon!
