ACES Program - Spring 2019

The Spring 2019 ACES program will take place on Saturday, June 1st, 2019! Experiments will include:

Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream - An ultra-cold treat, ultra-fast!

Colorful Chemistry - Learn about invisible ink and bring color to life!

Balloon-powered Cars - Design an aerodynamic race car powered by a blown-up balloon! Put your vehicle to the test against other future scientists.

Making Gold Nanoparticles - Use tea leaves to make colorful gold nanoparticles!

Separating Dyes with Electricity - Use gel-like substances and electricity to move and separate different dye molecules- a very colorful experiment that will spark excitement in young scientists!

Spaghetti Marshmallow Towers - Become an engineer for the day, as you construct the tallest tower you can from common household food items.


Note that some of the experiments are the same as those from the Fall, but each student will be participating in the opposite experiments from last time.

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