>Con Edison Family Science Saturday: Colorful Science

Saturday, February 23, 2019

11:30 a.m.1:30 p.m.

Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Save the date for this family program that is generously funded by Con Edison. Free on line registration will open shortly.

We are introducing a new quarterly program that will connect families with younger children (ages 5-7) to the wonders of hands-on science. To complete each experiment, participants must work within their family unit, with parents/guardians assisting and guiding their children.

Colorful Science: There are more to colors than what first meets the eye. Using magic markers, food coloring, and more, we will mix, separate, and spread various shades and hues.
