Science with little kids

I hosted two programs this week: Science After Dark and Puppets!

Science After Dark compiled some simple science experiments using everyday materials. We explored inertia, chemical reactions, static, hydrophobic materials, and the joys of slime.

In Puppets this month we began constructing the puppets for our annual puppet show. This meant working on several different kinds of puppets all at once, so I wasn't able to get very many photos. Here's a couple of shots of the in progress puppets.
