4 H Science Day

Last week, the senior 4 Hers were off to the State O' Rama which takes place at the University of Arkansas campus in Fayetteville AR.  One of the days they were gone, we had a Science Day.  The children had a lot of fun.  Chelsea had my camera at the State o' Rama, but I did snap a few pictures with my phone.

Alex gave his floating eggs demonstration.



Nicholas demonstrated an electrical circuit.



Then we got to go outside and make ooze from corn starch and water.




Next they did an activity with bowls of ice water.  They put their hands in the water to see how long they could leave it there.  Then they did the activity again with three different "gloves" (sandwich bags) filled with salt, flour, and shortening to see which one insulated from the cold the most.  I didn't take any pictures of that activity.  But my girls did a good job keeping busy.
Emelia would not take a paci as a baby at all, but she found this the other day and has been carrying it around with her.  Silly girl!



Next we made a snack using two kinds of pudding, vanilla wafers, crushed oreos, and crushed vanilla wafers to represent the different layers of soil.


Next the children built catapults out of popsicle sticks, rubber bands, and a water bottle lid.


Then of course we had to see how they worked, so we practiced shooting marshmallows into a bowl.





The last activity was putting mentos into diet coke and sprite which of course was everyone's favorite activity.  I didn't get any pictures of that either because I was gathering things up so we could get going.  It was Anthony's birthday and we were meeting daddy for lunch.  The children had a great time at Science Day.
