Earth's Amazing Wonders &
Crazy Chemistry

Join us for a fun-filled day of science experiments and cool projects. In this 1 day Mad Science Class, children will have tons of fun mixing up potions and experimenting with all kinds of chemical reactions! Our young chemists will create exothermic reactions, and make their own sidewalk chalk and crystal gardens to take home. They will also get a chance to investigate the basics of Rocks, Minerals, Volcanoes, and Earthquakes!
