What are the scientific tools we carry with us every day? How do they help us understand the world around us? This lab explores an assortment of materials that stimulate all five senses. Students make and take home flubber.

NOTE: An edible fingerpainting activity in this class involves milk, sugar, gluten and food coloring. If a student has food allergies or sensitivities, please email to indicate restrictions at least one week before the lab day. We will substitute appropriate non-allergenic materials.

This program takes place in the Discovery Lab in the Science Playground Exhibit Hall. Combine this program with a field trip to the museum.

A minimum of 2 weeks' advance notice is required for all registration requests. If you have questions, please contact us at 503.797.4661 or
