Super Science Day: Splash! Exploring Water

Spend a day at the Montshire celebrating summer by getting wet!

Outside in Science Park try making boats that float down the 'Rill." Test the strength of foil boats and experiment with what floats and sinks. Then explore the science of water at the Science Discovery Lab. Investigate the properties of water, experiment with density by making liquid rainbows, and see how colors behave in water. It promises to be a wet day both inside and out!

12:00 Cork Boats – construct your own boat and follow it down the stream in Science Park.

1:00 Surface Tension – test the power of water and other liquids at the Science Discovery Lab.

2:00 Liquid Rainbows – experiment with the density of water while making a miniature rainbow. For adults and kids 9 and over. Science Discovery Lab.

3:00 Who Sank the Boat? – how strong can you make your boat before it sinks? Science Park Patio.
