Salty Science (Virtual Family Science Workshop)

Take part in 75-minute family workshops for children 6-12 years old and their caregivers. Specific workshops are designed for older children. Even extended families in multiple locations can participate!

During the workshop, a Museum Educator will lead learners through activities via Zoom. Each workshop will cover a unique science topic.

Open those kitchen cabinets and grab some supplies for some family kitchen science. Together we’ll explore dissolving, density and evaporation with classic experiments from the Montshire as well as setting up some longer-term experiments to track over the next week.

Materials: salt, food coloring, four clear cups, a clear cylinder (like a vase or other narrow container), pitcher of water, straws, spoon, paper and pencil.
