Clay Creations Come create some cute clay animals while learning about what elements of their habitats help them survive in the wild! In this class, we will work with both air dry clay and oven bake polymer clay while exploring techniques and clay tools to help our animals become life-like and unique. We will form clay animals and their habitats such as native plants, animals homes and elements from the environment. Each day we will create a full habitat diorama for our clay animals to live in. Not So Mad Scientists Did you know that reactions are happening all around us, even within us all the time? Driven by curiosity, we’ll explore the magic of chemistry in our everyday lives as we learn about atoms, molecules, elements and compounds, and test our theories with various experiments. We'll create hydrophobic sand to understand the dynamic power of water. Using acids and bases, we’ll create exothermic and endothermic reactions. Next, we’ll learn to measure pH and play with polymers, such as bubble gum and plastics. Finally, we’ll explore simple chemical and physical reactions that appear to be magic, and use a bit of Chem-ART-istry to create our own one-of-a-kind t-shirt to take home!
