Shake up a flask of fun in the lab as a Junior Chemist! Try your hands as a real Mad Scientist in this whirlwind camp packed solid with cool reactions. Explore bubbling potions, slimy polymers, color changing liquids, dry ice bubbles, and solids that disappear in an instant! Start out the week learning about laboratory equipment at your personal lab tech bench. Then, slide down the PH scale and spend a day finding out how different chemicals react when mixed together. Build and break molecules and grow crystals in a petri dish. Ooze into a gooey day of making crazy concoctions such as glow putty, glow spheres in a test tube, thermochromic mixtures, and guar gum brain goo! Round out this radical week by manipulating matter in all of its three states! Take home a full set of Mad Science lab gear that includes a graduated cylinder, a flask, test tubes, goggles, and a lab coat. Come take a walk on the wild side of chemistry!
