Mad Science Day Camp: Gross Science & Radical Reactions

Get ready for a day in the Mad Science Laboratory! Do shocking experiments with electrochemical reactions, as you electroplate a penny and a nickel. Learn how chemical elements help you to create chemical compounds. Put your new chemistry know-how to work as you make your own brain goo! Make edible models of yucky molecules.


Ready, set, rotten reactions! Learn with hands-on reactions that matter is never created or destroyed. Turn an old potato into a battery. Make a squishy rainbow and a chemical battery in a beaker. Make your own invisible ink.

This camp is facilitated by Mad Science of the Triangle
