Today was SciExcite's first day at Delaware Elementary, and we absolutely fell in love with the kids that attended our session! We had half an hour to run through a few introductory chemistry experiments, and get them excited for what they would be experiencing for the rest of the year.
Today's experiments were Disappearing Water, Crystal Slime, and Tie-dye Milk! Crystal Slime was the only new experiment we tried, and it was so much fun that we plan to do it whenever we can. It involves making Gak using clear glue instead of white, so the Gak itself is actually clear, and looks really pretty when you add glitter and food coloring. We gave all the kids googly eyes as well so that they could create their very own sparkly slime monster!
Our first day at Delaware was such a huge hit, that we are going to request coming in more than once a month. We want as much time with these kids as possible!
