Spring Break at THEMUSEUM: Mad Science – Mad Mixtures!

Join us for an interactive introduction to the science of chemistry. You’ll learn about chemical safety and common hazard signs, and play a game to identify common laboratory equipment.  The concept of chemistry as ‘mixing things together’ will be explored in hands-on activities, when children pour, stir and mix their way to blowing up a balloon without their lungs!  An amazing demonstration opens up the world of polymers, and you’ll have the opportunity to make your own pot of Crazy Dough.

To make the Crazy Dough you’ll need: 

  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1tbsp of oil
  • 1-2 tbsp of water
  • food colouring (not necessary – just makes the crazy dough a colour)
  • 1/4 cup of vinegar
  • 2 tbsp of baking soda
  • 2-3 balloons
  • an empty water bottle
  • a wooden skewer
  • a bowl
  • a spoon

This event will be streamed live on our YouTube Channel.
