DECEMBER YOUNG DISCOVERS' SCHEDULE
Week 1 (Nov 29-Dec 1): Salt Crystal Leaves - In this STEAM activity, we'll be bringing the snow indoors and learning about supersaturated solutions! Learn about how you can create your own crystals using everyday household items to make a snowy leaf decoration.
Week 2 (Dec 6-8): Sprouting Christmas Trees - During the Mythbusters Christmas Special, they tested what you can do to make your Christmas Tree last. Find out what worked and learn about seeds and how they carry the necessities for a plant to grow by making your own Christmas Tree!
Week 3 (Dec 13-15): Salt & Ice: Discover why salt is spread out along sidewalks and driveways for the winter during this sensory play activity! Mythbusters used salt to cool something faster, how can it also melt something faster at the same time?
Week 4 (Dec 20-22): Fizzing Christmas Lights - The Mythbusters made a rocket out of the classic baking soda and vinegar reaction, we put a STEAM spin on it to make Christmas Decorations!
