Very few materials are needed to perform this impressive experiment. Explore how the stream of air from the blow dryer can cause a ping pong ball to float. Test your skills and see how many ping pong balls you can get to float at once!
Stay in on this cold January day and try this soapy experiment! Only a few items are needed to discover tiny bubbles that are hidden in this solid soap bar — see what happens when heat makes them expand!
And that’s a wrap on Girlstart After School 2017! This week we finished with some final showcases. Family members and friends were invited to come after club for the girls to present what they’ve learned this semester.
To do so, the girls recreated five activities from the semester: the density shapes, Oreo moon phases, conductors and insulators, forces and friction, and parachute activities. They then created and decorated a station for each activity. When guests arrived, the girls walked their guests through the stations, explaining each activity and what they learned.
It’s been a great semester, and we are already excited for Girlstart After School next year!
For some STEM fun and exploration while Girlstart After School is not in session, check out DeSTEMber on our website for a different activity every day of December!
This experiment may make your hair a little messy, but the result looks like magic! Teach your friends all about static electricity by repelling an empty soda can across the room using a charged balloon.
