Science Solvers: Grown in NC
ABOUT THIS EVENT
Play around with produce grown right here in North Carolina in Curiosity Square. Create cotton ball catapults, build a sweet potato battery, and mix and measure corn kernels.
Cotton Clues: Launch cotton balls with catapults into the baskets to learn about trajectory and force, then test the strength of cotton material through tearing and pulling to explore textile sciences.
Guess the Corn Kernels: Use math to figure out the volume of containers and guess how many corn kernels are in the jars, get your hands dirty with our sensory bin too!
Sweet Potato Battery: Learn about electrical engineering and chemistry by building a battery out of a sweet potato to power lights and a fan, up to the challenge?
Sprout A Seed: Create your own greenhouse to sprout a soybean at home and learn about plant science.
