HFN Youth Science Camp 2009

HFN Youth Science Camp 2009

August 25, 2009

Science Camp 2009 was held at the Hupacasath House of Gathering August 17-21. It was an awesome week filled with fun and learning. Day one was all about chemistry. Safety is always first so the day started with a lesson on safety. Afterwards it was chemistry and more chemistry. The kids learned about chemical reactions and how to identify when it is a chemical or physical change. They made gooey space slime in their choice colour. Right before their eyes, as they stirred, the two liquids turned into slime. They even cleaned pennies without touching them and made their own chalk.
