Stinky, colorful science!

This afternoon, our program room smelled terrible!  But the stink was worth it in the name of science!

Kids in grades 3-5 participated in this month's Science is Everywhere program where they utilized cabbage juice (which smells awful!) to perform pH indicator tests on a wide variety of substances!  They learned about pH, hypothesized about the pH levels of various substances, and then got to do hands-on testing.

Make sure to check out our Facebook page to see even more pictures of the fun!

This is part of our Science is Everywhere grant, which is administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, the Library Services and Technology Act, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
