Katie Beth and I went to Kids Trek at the Madison County Public Library today. Martha Williams puts on this free event, which is rich with science and discovery activities for children and adults like. The focus is on the children, but adults can participate in all the activities.
We started with making water molecule models out of sugar drops and marshmallows. The models were fun, but the proton and neutron nucleus made out of marshmallows was very sticky.
We made a ramp out of cheese and discussed the affect a ramp has on a force. Katie Beth may have enjoyed the cheese ramp more as a snack.
