Ever wondered what makes a ruby red or a diamond crystal clear? Come experiment with minerals from glittering gemstones to shining metals. Watch things bubble, pop, move, and fizz, change, spread, grow and twist. Join us in answering the question “What happens if....” 

At the end of the program you can pick out a gemstone from APEC’s collection to take home with you. Children will explore their inner scientist with this fun-filled, hands on experimenting class. They will be challenged to form a hypothesis based on the materials of the day, then draw conclusions based on their experimentations.

Limited to 8 participants.  For ages 7-10.
