Eggs-citing science experiments

We made volcano eggs last week, a twist on the classic baking-soda volcano.

It’s an easy (and colorful) experiment to do at home. Just mix baking soda into your Easter egg dye to make a paste, smear the paste over some hard-boiled eggs, and either pour vinegar onto your eggs or dump them into a cup of vinegar.

Our STEAM series returns next month with a program focused on technology on Tuesday, April 24, at our Main Branch.

(If you don’t know, STEAM is an acronym that stands for Science Technology Engineering Art Math.)

The program is free and open to all kids in first through fifth grade. However, registration is required. You can sign up online or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.

By the way, young scientists can also check out the Picking Up STEAM Club at our Lake Branch.

Kids from kindergarten through fifth grade can learn about science, math and more with interactive experiments.

The next club meeting is at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 14. We’ll be making bird feeders and nests from household items.

Ms. Kim talks about the science of eggs. She explains that chickens don't crush eggs when they sit on them because of weight distribution.
