If you live in the Phoenix Metro area and you’ve got a budding chemist in your house, then check this out! We’re hosting the Atomic Adventures Summer Science Camp at the Burton Barr library! We’ll be running around, pretending to be atoms and molecules as we turn ourselves into polymers! We’ll bounce around as we demonstrate static electricity! We’ll make messes with slime, explore color changing chemistry with acids and bases, explore the sweet science of strawberry DNA extractions, and more! We’ll have games! We’ll have experiments! We’ll have sweet treats and candy science! Your kids will fall in love with science as they exploreRead More →

One of our favorite biology labs to do is the DNA Extraction Lab. We’ve been doing this activity since my daughter was 4 years old, and it is a fantastic and fun way to get a closer look at the tiny world inside of us! DNA exists inside of every single cell in our bodies, as well as every living cellular organism (that we know of) on Earth. You can think of DNA as the “code” that lets our cells know what job they have, and what category of tissues they belong to. Some cells are coded to be a part of our eyes, whileRead More →
