Little Makers: Sink and Float

 

Loading Events

Do everyday objects sink or float? Learn what buoyancy is with things you’re familiar with, such as cork, pipe cleaners and cardboard – predict if they will sink or float if you put them in water and then test your creations.

Recommended for children ages 18 months – 7 years old. $6 per child. (Members: $5 per child)

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.

This program is supported in part by funding from the New York Community Bank Foundation, the Liu Foundation and the Lily Auchincloss Foundation. Maker Space is made possible thanks to an investment by Cognizant through its Making the Future education initiative.
