Friday Activities at Nance

Dot Day was our first experience with Friday library activities! Lots of teamwork and critical thinking!

STEM challenge Friday! Can you build a bridge with marshmallow and toothpicks?

Glow Stick Science was a huge hit, especially when paired with Creepy Pair of Underwear!

Frankenworms gave us a great chance to talk about states of matter and why the worms seemed to come alive before our eyes!

Another great STEM challenge connected to Samurai Santa! We had to use what we knew about simple machines to make a catapult.

Thinking like scientists after reading Blizzard. What type of changes happened when we mixed the Alka-Seltzer with the water and oil?
