    November Labs

    Spooky Science
    Oct 29 – Nov 4

    As the nights get longer, things get spookier. The Lab is no exception! Investigate some cool chemistry in a new, fun way.

    Test Your Lungs
    Nov 5 – Nov 11

    Our lungs are one of our most important organs. This week in The Lab we will put our lungs to the test with exercise and relaxation and learn how air travels from outside our bodies to inside.

    Environmental Investigators
    Nov 12 – Nov 18

    Join us in The Lab for a week of hands-on activities about how pollution affects our water. Use different scientific tools to test our waters samples and decide which one is the healthiest.

    On saturday, November 17th, environmentalist Alison Singer and biologist Jacob Becker will be with us to talk about their research on pollution and facilitate some hands on activities for the day.

    Feeding Frenzy
    Nov 19 – Nov 25

    Come explore what and how different animals eat to survive! Act like a pollinator in our bee activity, look at different insect mouthparts in the microscopes, and investigate how different birds have different adaptations to help them eat!

    Holiday Constellations
    Nov 26 – Dec 2

    In The Lab this week we will look at the constellations that cover our skies in the winter months. We will discuss why they fascinate us and about the stars that make them possible.
