YCC set up 5 hands on experiment stations to compliment exhibits at the Augusta Museum History to teach local children the science behind carbon dating, transportation, and sports.
Kids were given a bone to “carbon date” and were guided through radioactive decay and mass spectrometry demonstrations.
A sharpie art chromatography station allowed kids to display their artistic side while learning about ink solubility and the molecular separation.
Balloon races were designed for budding scientists to understand how fuel and friction affect the speed of their “balloon rockets.”
The make your own bouncy ball station gave kids a chance to have fun and learn about the role polymers play in everyday objects.
Families stopped by each booth on the way into the museum, and some children were excited about repeating some of the stations on the way out!
