Mad Science - Wacky Waves
Mad Science is all wet this month with Wacky Waves: A program about water, waves and oceans.
Water covers most of our planet. We travel on it, swim and play in it and drink it. We're lucky here in Quincy to have beaches right in our own city. Take a trip to Wollaston beach or any of the other beaches nearby and explore tides, tide pools, waves, currents and more. Or stay home and try out some water experiments in your own kitchen or bathroom:
- Make a rain gauge to measure rain fall
- Gather some (waterproof) toys and household items (try sponges and erasers - anything you don't mind getting wet) and see what floats and what sinks in the bathtub or another tub of water
- Make tin foil boats and try to sink them
- Learn some interesting ocean facts here and here
Come in for our Mad Science programs and learn about how oil spills are cleaned up, how waves work and more. Sign ups for our June 21st programs begin on Monday, June 2nd.
