In February, we worked on the Fun With Science badge. The Ouelette family hosted the meeting. Mrs. O explained what science is and the scientific method. We explored light in different way. Mrs. O brought an electronic microscope and the kids had fun looking at all sorts of objects such as clothing, hair, skin, sugar, wood, water and more. Jacob O brought a glider he designed and created and showed how it worked. He also led the other children in paper airplane-making.
Libby O and Sarah D each demonstrated an experiment on the topic of Bending Light. Libby showed a variety of glass prisms and made a rainbow. (Sorry, no photos!) The final topic was Phases of the Moon, which the children displayed with Oreo cookies.
