Adventures in Science: Color Changing Magic Potions!


*THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED FROM AUGUST 8TH TO AUGUST 15TH, DUE TO POWER OUTAGES IN MONROE.



Have you always wanted to make potions that change color and fizz like magic? Bring your best wizard's hat if you wish, and join Miss Katie to either observe as it is demonstrated or do the experiment yourself, as well as learn about acids, bases, and the PH scale! The magic (and science!) is in the cabbage.

Grades K - 6. Assistance from a parent or guardian is necessary for prep and may also be needed during the experiment.

Register to receive the Zoom link in an email. Please use your oldest child's name to register. Only one registration form is needed per family.

The key ingredient for this experiment requires prep by a parent or guardian before the program, detailed below:

In order to do the experiment, we will need juice from a red cabbage. Red cabbage juice is a natural PH indicator, and the key to the experiment. A parent or guardian should boil about ¼ of a red cabbage until the water turns purple. Then, discard the boiled cabbage but keep the purple water and let it cool before using for the experiment.

After the cabbage juice prep is complete, please gather the following materials and bring them with you to the program:

  • Red cabbage juice!

  • Some clear jars, cups, or water bottles - at least 3 but you can use as many as you want! We will divvy out the juice into these so we can observe as they change color!

  • A funnel or bowl with a spout if desired to help pour the cabbage juice into the clear containers.

  • Vinegar

  • Baking soda

  • A teaspoon or tablespoon, so we can add small amounts of our acids or bases to the cabbage juice at a time.

  • Anything you may need to prep for spills, as the vinegar and baking soda fizz can sometimes overflow.

Adventures in Science: DIY Slushies!

There are few things as refreshing as a slushy during the hottest days of summer! Ever wanted to turn your favorite juice, soda, iced tea, lemonade or Gatorade into a slushy of your own invention at home? Join Miss Katie to learn how to make your own slushy and about the science behind it!

K - 6. Children may need assistance from a parent or guardian for part of this experiment. We have to shake the bag with the juice and ice for 3 - 5 minutes to get the slushy effect, and children may need a second person there to switch off with if they need a break, or to help them with this part.

 

Please register to receive the Zoom link in an email. Please use your oldest’s child’s name to register. Only one registration form is needed per family.
 

Please gather the following materials and bring them with you:

  • A small quart or sandwich-sized ziplock bag

  • Enough of the juice, soda, Gatorade, lemonade, iced tea or other beverage of your choice to fill most of the ziplock sandwich bag.

  • A gallon-sized ziplock bag to put the quart-sized ziplock bag into.

  • 2 - 3 cups of ice cubes

  • 2 - 3 tablespoons of salt

  • A dish towel to protect your hands from the cold as you shake the bag with ice in it.

  • A cup to pour your slushy into after the experiment, so you can taste test your finished product!
