Science Quest

July 8, 2013 @ 7:30 am - 5:30 pm CST

Science Quest: July 8 – 12

Have you ever wanted to count how many times you fart in a day? During Science Quest, you will confirm or deny science myths, such as how many times a person burps in a day, and see methane in action!  Our science experiment called “Bug Bucket” will introduce you to larvae and how they break down food waste. You will visit a local wastewater treatment plant, and go on a “Poop Hike” to learn the science of scatology. Grow your own mini veggie garden using compost created by our wiggly worms, and participate in a flying marshmallow competition. It sounds like a lot but you’ll be keeping your notes and photos in your own Taltree journal.

Ages:     Rising 3rd-6th Graders
