Can states of matter change from one to another? Stop by Discovery Place Kids throughout November to explore the interaction of molecules in everyday items. We’ll play with science in exciting ways!

What is oobleck? Find out on Tuesdays and Thursdays when we examine this non-Newtonian fluid. On Wednesdays and Fridays, explore the Science of Bubbles with a special story time and bubble fun outdoors in the Learning Garden.

Additional activities this month include:
