Cool-ology presents Snow and Ice STEAM Lab for Kids!
Since we have to live with it, we might as well play with it! These simple but cool science experiments about snow and ice will get kids interested in learning about nature’s frozen womnders. Participants will use their engineering skills to create the best ice insulator. We’ll combine science and art to make cool simulated snowflakes and fake snow!
Activity 1 • 3 ice cubes (keep frozen until the very last minute) • 1 tbs salt • 1 teaspoon • 2 small bowls • 6 inch square aluminum foil • 1 zippered sandwich bag
Activity 2 • toothpicks OR cotton swabs • pony beads (blue and white are best, but whatever color you have is fine!) OR mini marshmallows • paper (copy/construction/tissue- whatever you have on hand) • pencil • scissors
Activity 3 • 1 cup baking soda AND/OR cornstarch • 1 cup FOAM shaving cream (not gel) OR white hair conditioner • 1 medium sized bowl • 1 spoon for mixing • high sided tray (this can get messy!)
Activity 4 • ⅓ -½ cup salt • white glue • construction paper OR card stock • pencil • water color paint or food coloring mixed with a little water (we can do this together) in a small cup • eye dropper OR straw
