they mix, churn, and absorb different materials just as their bodies would. SC.N; SC.L

Potions in Motion

Capacity 30  | Ÿ 45 minutes
Take matters into your own hands and explore the world around you through chemistry! Mix,
smash, and stir ingredients to create dazzling, fizzing, and bubbling effects. Try experiments
involving density; states of matter; acids, bases, and salts; oxidation-reductions; and more. Grab
your safety goggles and set your inner mad scientist free! SC.N; SC.P

Rocky Road

Capacity 30  | Ÿ 45 minutes
Ease on down the Rocky Road and get your hands dirty studying fossils, rocks, minerals, and land
