Bubbles at Science and Nature Club.

On Aug. 25, Science and Nature Club members met to learn about surface tension by experimenting with bubbles. They learned how to make a bubble solution. Then they discussed what substances mix to create the water tension which holds air thus creates a bubble. Members also blew bubbles with different wands that they created. It was a perfect summer science activity. Thank you for organizing this, Jennifer K.!

Our members who attended The Magic House field trip this month.
On Aug. 28, we took this year's Annual Fall Field Trip to The Magic House in St. Louis. Forty-four members attended. We began our time in The Magic House by playing together in the traveling exhibit "Forts & Clubhouses."  We also enjoyed the "Children's China: Celebrating Culture, Character, and Confucius" temporary exhibit, as well as all of the other wonderful hands-on activities at this children's museum. Thank you for organizing this, Evie M.!
