Upcoming Workshops

Parent & Teen Chemistry Lab

  Mondays, April 10 - May 15, 6 - 8 pm, Health & Science Building Rm. 329

Learn molecular concepts of chemistry and how modern instrumentation is used to understand and analyze chemical behavior. Focus on chemicals we smell and eat in our regular lives - analysis of food aroma, essential oils from spices, analysis of spice extracts - finding the molecular composition and investigating the properties of those chemicals.

Students in grades 7 - 10 will be given lab safety training appropriate to the experiments performed. Before work with chemicals begin, participants must sign agreement to follow lab safety procedures and rules. Parents must attend and participate with their children. (Herbelin) $29

  Registration is required and space is limited. Register today at Chem Lab registration.

STEAM Workshop: The Science of Pottery

  Saturday, May 13, 9 am - 2 pm, Main Building Rm.104

Making things from burnt clay has been part of human experience for many thousands of years. But how does clay extracted from the earth become a colorful pot? Are there different types of clay? Students will work in a group to make a coil pot while exploring the science behind pottery. (Pei Pei Wallace) Free.

  Registration required and space is limited. Register today at Pottery Science registration.
