This month’s activities: Flash Pickling, Paper Rockets

Use everyday materials to create models and other tools for exploring the world around us. Run by a highly skilled, dedicated team of volunteers, these drop-in workshops mix classic activities with open-ended investigations, encouraging participants to follow their hunches to aha moments of scientific insight.

Flash Pickling
Turn vegetables into a delicious pickled snack! Flash Pickling is a simple technique that lets you perform the pickling process in under a minute.

Paper Rockets
Paper rockets excite our urge to fly. See how high your rocket can launch with the help of a plastic tube, a water bottle, and an enthusiastic stomp.

All materials provided; take what you make.
