What’s the Matter? (Solids, Liquids, and Gases)

Inquiry Room Investigation 

Get ready to melt, freeze, and get vaporized as you explore the states of matter with everyday substances. Build a liquid density tower, learn how humans can manipulate the states of matter and create phase-shifting chemical reactions. Break the laws of physics and make non-newtonian slime to take home!

In-person capacity may be limited in compliance with public health guidelines in effect on the day of your visit.
