On Thursday, campers went on a treasure hunt around the Museum in search of polymers (plastic). They learned about the 7 different recycling codes and got to see some examples of each! Using paperclips to represent monomers, the campers connected them to create chains of monomers, also known as polymers. The favorite activity of the day, was our color changing slime. We mixed up slime with the campers and added ThermoChromic pigment, the same stuff that is in mood rings. The campers loved playing with our color-changing slime!

On Friday, our final day of Adventures in Chemistry, the camper got to experience food chemistry! They tested various food items for starch and glucose using iodine, and TesTape strips. Today, we had a special treat at snack! Campers added baking soda to lemonade to create a fizzy lemonade drink. Campers experimented with dissolving M&Ms in different sugar solutions. They enjoyed watch the M float away!
