Science Fun Day at the YMCA

November 7, 2016

Our Science Fun Day, sponsored in cooperation with the Society of Women Engineers, took place this weekend at the Duanesburg YMCA.  Students in grade 3-8 had a blast making slime, playing with squishy circuits, and much more.  Students learned about tension and compression in structures by building marshmallow and spaghetti towers.  Using common household materials, they learned about chemical reactions and liquid densities while creating psychedelic lava lamps.  They even got to test out the effects of symmetry and friction on rocket cars they built using foam, straws, zip ties and balloons.


After trying each of the experiments, everyone enjoyed lunch and even got a t-shirt to help them remember the fun!
