Saturday Serious Fun - Expanding Balloons
Why blow up a balloon yourself when you can let chemistry do it for you? We’ll be experimenting with balloons and learning about air pressure, static electricity and carbon dioxide this coming Saturday. Explore many ways to inflate balloons and see some spectacular ways to pop balloons. We are sure there will be some excitement as we use ordinary balloons to “expand” our knowledge.
When: 1:00 pm Saturday, December 20, 2014
Suitable for all ages; FREE for members, regular admission for non-members.
