IROEC: Wacky Science Field Trip
March 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
One of the most popular programs in which students learn the basics of chemistry through fun hands-on experiments! Students engage concepts such as covalent bonds and how we create and break them, non-Newtonian liquids and how they bend the laws of physics, and how matter can go through fascinating processes such as sublimation and deposition. Students get their hands dirty while crafting their own bouncy balls (that they get to keep!) to learn about polymers, personally experience both implosions and explosions, as well as learn about acidic-basic reactions to fully understand the differences between physical and chemical reactions. Our trained instructors can also juggle fire, create explosions and teach about free radicals, convection, and thermal energy in a safe yet captivating way.
Free Parking. A flier with more detailed information will be provided prior to the field trip. ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST WEAR STURDY, CLOSED-TOE SHOES AT ALL TIMES (no sandals, crocs, slippers or flip flips, etc.) Comfortable attire is recommended. If sibling is participating, they must pay $25, otherwise if they are observing, it is free. Parents do not need a ticket.
