Little Makers: Cornstarch Chemistry

 

Loading Events

Participate in hands-on experiments to squish, mush and sculpt cornstarch. Explore the chemistry of cornstarch and join us each week to create new radical reactions with this amazing ingredient!

Sometimes creativity can get messy, so dress your little maker (and yourself) in old clothing that can be splattered with things like paint, ink, and oobleck.

Drop in times: 10:30 am – 12:15 pm

Recommended for children ages 18 months to 7 years old. 

$6 per child, plus NYSCI admission. (Members: $5 per child)
