Rainbow Icicles

This is the COOLEST experiment! Icicles form when dripping water starts to freeze, so on a chilly day, throw on your snowsuit, hats, and mitts, and head outside with Miss Laura and learn how you can make some beautiful, (and maybe even colourful!) icicles right in your own backyard!

Some Snowy Science

When real snow is just too cold, why not make some pretend snow inside?! Miss Laura is experimenting with some cool mixtures today! Watch and learn what happens when you mix snow with Alka-Seltzer!

Circuit with LED light and playdough
Squishy Circuits

Did you know you can make circuits with playdough?! With the right ingredients, playdough acts a conductor, meaning that electricity can travel through it! So mix up some salt dough, grab a battery, LED light, and a few alligator clips, and maybe a grown up to help out, and see if you can make some squishy circuits of your own!

Slime Time with Laura
Slime Time with Laura

Time for a chemistry lesson with Miss Laura! Today we’re learning about polymers, viscosity, and molecules, all while making: SLIME!  You’ll need glue, baking soda, and contact solution for this experiment, and of course a space where you can get a little bit messy!

Helping Harry STEAM Challenge
Helping Harry STEAM Challenge

Helping Harry is an accessible STEAM challenge for engineers of all ages! Harry needs a safer place to perch, how high off the ground can you get this little puff with just a few materials? You can only use… 8 pipecleaners, 1 piece of tinfoil, 2 small pieces of cardstock, 2 cupcake liners, and 1 arm’s length of masking tape! Good luck!


Ever heard of a “Non Newtonian Fluid?” What about OOBLECK? Get messy with Miss Laura today as she mixes cornstarch and water to create some awesome slime. Check out what happens as you move your hand slowly through the mixture. Then, what happens when you move your hand quickly through it?

The Umbrella STEAM Challenge
The Umbrella STEAM Challenge

Put on your engineering hats, it’s time to get inventive! Can you create an umbrella for a toy using materials found around your house? Remember, in STEAM activities, there is never just ONE right answer!
