Outreach - Science Saturday

At the beginning, when everything was
still clean. It didn't last long!
Table 1: Lego Building Club
  • Giant Lego tub
Table 2: Library promotion
  • Osmo
  • 3-D printer items
  • Maker kits, science experiment books
  • Tablet and scanner (to check out)
  • Program calendars
Table 3: Mad Scientists Club

Recipe
  • Mix 1/2 cup glue, 1/2 water, and food coloring
  • Mix 1 tsp of borax and 1 cup of very hot water
  • Pour borax solution into glue solution. Stir until cooled, then work with hands until all the water is worked out
Supplies
  • Glue, borax, food coloring
  • measuring cups, mixing bowls, spoons, pitcher
  • tablecloth, wipes, ziplock bags

  • 2-4-17
    • I didn't bring the remote circ and only a couple kits and the osmo, in addition to the goo and legos. It went very well.

    • This was a school-sponsored outreach event. I think about 150 people came and we basically made goo for 4 hours straight! It was a great event, lots of community connections. I'd have more food coloring (I wish they came in tablets or something) and ziplock bags and make sure I had an easy way to dump the waste water. Closer sink access would have been better too, but we made do!
