ACES Program - Spring 2015

The Spring 2015 ACES program took place on May 9th, 2015! Experiments were all new and included the following activities:

  • Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream - a delicious Non-Newtonian fluid!
  • CSI: Mystery Powders - using chemistry to solve a crime!
  • Gold Nanoparticles - students made their own nanoparticles and looked at them through a home-made spectrometer!
  • Bottle Rockets - using science to determine the best recipe for a bottle rocket's flight!
  • Chemiluminescence - What makes fireflies glow?
  • Bouncy Balls - students tested several recipes for bouncy balls to find the best one!

Kids took home a bag with the ACES logo, several souvenirs from the experiment, a Certificate of Participation (with a list of practiced skills), and a lab notebook containing activities and take-home instructions!
