12th Annual Coe Playground of Science

 

Kids! Bring your parents to the "Coe Playground of Science" night at Coe College in Cedar Rapids! Each fall the Coe College Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Nursing, Psychology, Math, Computer Science, and ROTC clubs will lead the fun in Peterson Hall. There are interactive demos that teach kids of all ages about the natural world around them. We levitate things, launch pumpkins on our trebuchet, do the "mentos and diet pepsi demo," make dragon's breath flames, play with numbers, demonstrate strong magnets, make snow, show models of eyes and hearts, teach about the human body, show how chemistry allows us to create useful substances, make ice cream with liquid air, pour molten glass at almost 2000 oF, and much more. Come have fun and learn about our natural world, all ages are welcome.
