Super Science: Lemon Volcanoes (Biology & Chemistry)

The twin team of CHS students Lea and Jack Casano-Boris returns for a summer series of Super Science for Kids classes!  Each class includes an experiment and an explanation of the science behind that experiment.  Classes will be conducted online via Zoom.  Before the class, the students will receive a Zoom link, instructions for preparation, and will have to pick up a supply kit using the library’s Takeout service.  Experiments can get a little messy, and parents’ supervision and help is required for all classes.

**************

On July 27, students will take a lemon and make a gushing, bubbling volcano right at their home!  The chemical reaction between the citric acid in the juice of the lemon and baking soda creates a colorful “lava” that will ooze out of the fruit!

Grades 1 to 3                                                        Limit: 10 students

Each class requires separate registration, opening two weeks prior to the class.

Registration limited to Chatham residents only.

Super Science: Catapults (Physics & Engineering)

The twin team of CHS students Lea and Jack Casano-Boris returns for a summer series of Super Science for Kids classes!  Each class includes an experiment and an explanation of the science behind that experiment.  Classes will be conducted online via Zoom.  Before the class, the students will receive a Zoom link, instructions for preparation, and will have to pick up a supply kit using the library’s Takeout service.  Experiments can get a little messy, and parents’ supervision and help is required for all classes.

**************

On August 3, we will learn about catapults.  Last year we built catapults in class, but that would be difficult working online without the teacher’s assistance.  Students will get pre-made catapults and decorate them.  They will be also provided with “ammunition” to test their catapults and see which object goes the farthest.

Grades 1 to 3                                                        Limit: 10 students

Each class requires separate registration, opening two weeks prior to the class.

Registration limited to Chatham residents only.
