We know you LOVE doing experiments!  Well, this session is full of them!  In this totally hands-on event, led by our own CAGIS Teen Ambassadors, you’ll participate in an engineering challenge to design a buoyant foil boat, test your own sense of taste, and make a DIY lava lamp.  Let’s welcome summer with these STEM-tastic experiments!
Preparation: Engineering Challenge: 1 sheet of aluminum foil that is 30 cm x 45 cm, a container like a sink, tub or bucket to float your boat in about 40 cm of water, approximately 50 coins or marbles or other items that may be used as weights.  Food colouring (optional).  

Serial Dilution: 4 cups with 60mL (that’s 1/4 cup) of water in each, 1 teaspoon of sugar, paper towel, 1 tablespoon measure.  

Lava Lamp: baking soda, cold water, cooking oil, food coloring, lemon juice or vinegar, clear container with cap or lid for the lava lamp, a tablespoon or teaspoon.
