Announcements & Upcoming Events
Thursday, February, 5 at 1pm
What is the first thing you should learn in chemistry? Never lick the spoon. Science Friday for the month of February will be held on Thursday, February 5, due to the office being closed February 6th. This month, we will explore Chemistry. During this lesson, we will perform hands-on Chemistry experiments and learn what a chemical reaction is. It is advised that you do not wear your best clothes for this experimentation, as you may get messy. Be ready to learn, explore, and be amazed at what we will observe.
