A Slimey Science Saturday

Many of you may know that I run a science outreach-type program at the West Regional Branch library once a month called Science Saturday. It’s a fun program open to all ages, where we explore some science topic and have some fun with it. This month’s topic was SLIME!

We started off in the beginning of the year with four girls, and each time we meet we double in attendance (if not more than double!). This past Saturday, I had the honor of hosting Science Saturday to 72 awesome individuals. 

That’s right. 72. 

The kids, teens, and adults in attendance had a blast making slime, (I talked about the recipe we used in this post: https://stardustandsteel.wordpress.com/2013/07/07/slime-and-tarantulas/). It really was a lot of fun, as well as a huge mess. But what good is science if you don’t get a little bit messy? 

The amount of people that turned out for the event was very humbling and very exciting to me, and I hope to continue bringing science to so many people. 

Without further adieu, here are some of the best shots from Science Saturday!
