  • We had a great time learning about acidity and the pH scale (1-14). The kids got to run around the community center on a scavenger hunt. They learned that acids are characterized by a sour taste (as you can see from their reactions from lemon juice - pH 2), while bases are slippery to the touch (like soapy water - pH 12). They had to make observations and hypotheses about the order of the samples, and then got to test it using strips of litmus paper. After the scavenger hunt, the kids got to unwind by building a city and then destroying it. We finished the night with some "science sorbet," where the phase change from ice to water removed heat from the orange juice.

 

Next Event: TBA @ the MLK FAME Community Center
