Science Saturdays is a fun opportunity for students to get dirty and make a mess as they explore grade-appropriate scientific principles of biology, chemistry and physics.  The program encourages teamwork and collaboration in a non-competitive environment.  Examples of activities from previous years include dissecting owl pellets, creating food chains and food webs, simulating tsunamis, making tornadoes in a jar, dissecting flowers, building bridges, dissecting chicken wings, testing color dyes, constructing clay boats for buoyancy, graphing sonic monitoring of movement and speed, simulating digestion, making glow in the dark silly putty and even making ice cream.
