Kopernik Observatory hosts "Girl Power Science"
4/15/2014 (Updated 7:03:10 PM)Even though the students are on spring break, that didn't stop them from learning chemistry at the Kopernick Observatory and Science Center.
Girls from grades 3-6 participated in Girl Power Science. Girls discovered the fun and excitement of bubbling chemical reactions using vinegar, baking soda, and Alka Seltzer. Students also made fountains of fizz using Diet Coke, Mentos and other reactants to see which one made the biggest geyser!
"It was cool because some of them exploded when you weren't expecting it at all said Kaitlyn Eckert.
In the Bubble Gum Lab, the girls discover how bubble gum is made and experimented with flavors and colors in order to make their own.
"Some stuff like this you are not going to do in school because you have to do all this math and everything else but here you get to do experiments and have fun but not get to crazy about it said Kayla Pickett."
The program runs through Thursday April 17th and will also host a "Chemistry Spa-tacular" where girls will make their own soaps, lotions and potions to enjoy and bring home.
