Coe Playground of Science

Thursday, October 24, 2013

Coe College faculty and students from the physics, biology, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, nursing, psychology and ROTC departments will provide demonstrations and facilitate hands-on opportunities to show that science can be fun at the 11th annual Coe Playground of Science. There will be interactive demos that teach kids of all ages about the natural world around them. Get ready to levitate objects, launch pumpkins, make dragon's breath flames, play with numbers, be amazed by strong magnets, make snow, see models of eyes and hearts, make ice cream with liquid air, see molten glass poured at almost 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, and much more. The Playground of Science is designed for elementary school students and their parents, but students of all ages are welcome to participate. There will be door prizes and fun throughout the evening and the event is free and open to the public.
